If you’re in the vicinity of USC’s Doheny Memorial Library, you may want to know that at 8pm (local time) on Thursday, April 17th, they are holding a multimedia event celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the annual Wonderland Award that LCSNA members George and Linda Cassady so kindly sponsor.  The library is also home to the Cassady Lewis Carroll Collection, which is cause for celebration any day.

A Wonderland-Themed Crossword Puzzle!

Here’s a treat for those of you who love to do a crossword with your tea or coffee on Sunday: Clever USC graduate student Andrew Woodham has won the 9th annual USC Libraries “Wonderland Award” by creating a crossword puzzle with an Alice in Wonderland theme.  To read about the contest, and download a PDF of the puzzle to solve for yourself, click the image or click here.

This is actually the second year in a row Mr. Woodham has won the competition, a feat which, contrariwise, is a “first” in the award’s history.  The contest was the brainchild of LCSNA member Linda Cassady; she and member Angelica Carpenter were among the distinguished judges for this year’s competition.  Congrats to Mr. Woodham and thanks to USC and Linda for sponsoring this contest!
