Spotlight on Collectors

June 11, 2023 , 2:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Watch our 2023 Spotlight on Collectors on YouTube.

11AM Pacific/ 2PM Eastern/ 7PM UK

Join your fellow LCSNA members and friends as we go on a virtual tour of some very special Carrollian collections. In addition to exclusive looks at exquisite ephemera, we’ll explore what drives collectors to collect, and how they settle on specialty and scope. We are very excited to welcome Dr. Catherine Richards, Clare Imholtz and Joel Birenbaum.

Catherine Richards will give an introduction to the important field of Carrollian Deltiology, sharing some of her favourite specimens, and showing how they can lead to some fascinating research.

Joel Birenbaum, serious and not-so-serious collector of all things Alice, will present Joel’s Adventures in Wonderland: How I Went Down a Rabbit Hole and Found the Cat.

Clare Imholtz will share her Alice-themed yearbook collection!
