LCSNA Spring 2013 Meeting

April 19, 2013 - April 21, 2013

Stephanie Lovett and Charlie and Janice Lovett were our hosts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for a very full, multiple-venue three days (April 19-21). The events included a fully-staged performance of Dan Singer‘s new play, A Perfect Likeness, about an imagined meeting between Dodgson and Dickens; a talk by Charlie on the influence of Rev. Charles Dodgson on his son’s religious thinking; a chamber music concert featuring some of Carroll’s favorite tunes; a talk by Dr. Morna O’Neill on Edward Steichen and Lewis Carroll as photographers; Mark Richards on Carroll and surrealism; a presentation by Jett Jackson about her Alice paintings and sculptures; a Victorian Choral Evensong service featuring a sermon by Mark Goodacre based on an outline by Rev. Dodgson (Carroll, not his father), and an exhibition of the Lovett Collection, “Lewis Carroll & The Writer’s World.” Handouts included a catalogue of exhibits, an updated version of Charlie’s article about Carroll’s typewriter (with text actually typed on the machine and laid into every copy!), and there was more than the usual amount of wonderful dining and socializing events, as well. By all accounts, the weekend was nothing less than utterly frabjous.
