The Caledon Library’s Books of the Month for November are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll.
These works are both well-loved children’s classics and masterpieces of literary absurdity. They have been turned into sugary animations, and loving explored and mined by critics, philosophers, legal theorists and logicians. The result of a mysterious synergy between the Liddell sisters, Ina, Alice and Edith, and a brilliant and odd mathematician, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, these works have a dreamlike weave of sense and nonsense that invites the reader to fall down a rabbit hole, partake in a mad tea-party, and play croquet with a queen.
In celebration of these works, the Caledon Library invites you to Take Tea with the maddest of the mad: the Librarians and the Literary Enthusiasts of Caledon. Costumes are heartily encouraged: March Hares, Cheshire Cats, Knaves of Hearts, Flamingos, Hedgehogs, Chess Pieces, and all manner of characters from the Works of Lewis Carroll are most cordially invited.
Copies of the Works may be obtained at the library, or found at the following Ætheric Locales:
Alice in Wonderland
Through the Looking Glass
