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.
Tickets will be £15 per person (which includes tea and coffee, but please bring your own lunch).
The Study Day’s Programme is:
10.15-11.00am: Isabel Sullivan:
Lewis Carroll at Surrey History Centre: An Introduction to the Archives
11.20-12.20pm: Edward Wakeling:
Lewis Carroll, The Man and His Circle
