Spring Meeting Canceled

Dear Members and Friends of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America.
As you are aware, organizations and institutions are canceling public gatherings as a preventive measure against the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. This is to inform you that the LCSNA 2020 Spring Meeting in Cleveland, OH will not be held on the originally scheduled dates of May 8-10, but is rescheduled to Saturday, Oct 3 -Sunday October 4 [with the Schaefer Memorial Reading on Friday, Oct 2], and will still be hosted at Case Western Reserve University. Please continue to check the website for additional updates about the LCSNA meeting as we move closer to the new date.

During this period of uncertainty, we look forward to a time where it is safe for us to travel and meet.

I want to thank the Board of Directors, Arnold Hirshon (Vice Provost and University Librarian at Case Western Reserve University and host of the Spring [now Fall] 2020 meeting), and E. Haven Hawley (Chair, Department of Special & Area Studies Collections at the University of Florida and host of the LCSNA 2020 Fall meeting [now postponed to Fall 2021] for working together on the LCSNA meeting schedule. I was uplifted by Dr. Hawley’s statement when discussing the future meetings she wrote: “Our partnership now is as part of support for the larger society through postponement.”

If you have questions, please send an email to linda.cassady@comcast.net.

We wish good health to all.

Linda Cassady, President and the Board of Directors
Lewis Carroll Society of North America
