Come and listen to the Ottawa (and environs) contributors of the Alice Unbound: Beyond Wonderland anthology (Exile Editions). I’ll be reading an excerpt from my short story, A Night at the Rabbit Hole. Join me with authors Kate Heartfield, Geoff Gander, Fiona Plunkett, Elizabeth Hosang, and Alexandra Renwick. Buy books, answer trivia questions, and enjoy a lovely afternoon with us!
I might even get a bit Mad Hatter with my outfit that day! 😀
Lewis Carroll’s influence on literature and popular culture since the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) has been nothing short of astonishing. It seems we all know something about Alice and Wonderland, but like Alice herself upon her first reading of Jabberwocky, we find: It fills my head with such ideas, but I don’t know what they are.” So as each new generation falls under Carroll’s word spells. each in turn must attempt to understand what Alice and Wonderland might mean in the context of their world and in their time.
