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:
