Lewis Carroll Study Day

The famous children’s author Lewis Carroll had some interesting connections with Guildford in Surrey for about 30 years, and the Carroll family subsequently entrusted his archives to be kept locally in Surrey.

Carroll, of course, is probably best known for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which has arguably endured as one of the world’s most popular children’s classics.

To help celebrate 150 years of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland the Surrey History Centre, in conjunction with the Lewis Carroll Society, is inviting people to join them for an exciting day of talks on the iconic Victorian author.

Lewis-CarrollThe Study Day will take place on Saturday, 7th November, 2015, from 10.00am until 3.15pm, at the Surrey History Centre, 130 Goldsworth Road, Woking, Surrey, GU21-6ND.
