What Is It About Alice? - Mark Burstein
Few literary works are more quoted, translated, and adapted than Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This year marks the sesquicentennial of the 1865 publication of the tale of a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a world full of curious characters.
Kicking off a two-month, citywide celebration of the book, Mark Burstein—former president of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America—discusses the impact that Carroll’s story and characters have had on literary and popular culture.
