Alice at 150

I’ve mentioned a few times that AIW is 150 years old this year, which has led to projects like this and exhibits like this.  Because Harvard owns a lot of Lewis Carroll materials, The Boston Globe has been printing articles about the books and author.  Claire’s mom has been sending her clippings that Claire shared with me.  I couldn’t access some of them online for everyone to see, but I did get this one about the incredible number of translations of the Alice books: article on alice translations. I was actually lucky enough to see the Harvard exhibit in person this summer, so I’m also including here a few of my own (not very good) photos:
