Alice in Wonderland, Oxford and Dodos
March 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presenter: Patty Heringer There really was a girl named Alice who grew up in the Oxford University college of Christ Church, where her father was the dean of the Oxford cathedral. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who is better known as Lewis Carroll, was a mathematics don at Christ Church and a friend of Alice’s family. On a summer day, Lewis Carroll, Alice, and her sisters were picnicking when a rabbit hopped by, inspiring Lewis Carroll to tell a story that became the whimsical, intriguing stories of Alice and a cast of imaginative characters often based on real personages as well as a museum piece.
