In a Dream within a Dream: Lewis Carroll and Alice in Wonderland

A performance by Richland Library Literary Resident Howard Burnham.

One hundred and fifty years ago this November, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson presented his hand-written and illustrated manuscript of “Alice’s Adventures Underground” to Alice Liddell, as a souvenir of a boating trip taken two years earlier. Discover how a stuffy Oxford mathematician and gifted pioneer photographer created a childhood classic ‘all in a golden afternoon’ on a river jaunt with a college colleague and the three Liddell sisters.
