Event Details: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
This talk will bring to light the curious history of Wonderland, tracing the origin, publication, and enduring appeal of Lewis Carroll's, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. First published in 1865, the classic tale immediately took hold of our imagination and was quickly adapted, parodied, and brought to America. It has never been out of print, and—150 years later—we are still following Alice down the rabbit hole.
Carolyn Vega is the Assistant Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, where she works with manuscripts and archives from the fourteenth century to the present.
