No other product of Victorian literature has enjoyed as long and boisterous a life as Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, a story written for one young girl that became an enduring, worldwide classic—adored by young and old. The Kansas City Public Library and Mid-Continent Public Library invite you to join family, friends, and neighbors in a citywide celebration of this beloved book in September, October, and November 2015.
The libraries' first Great City | Great Read initiative celebrates 150 years of Alice in literature and pop culture.
This collaborative program offers numerous opportunities to engage in Alice's whimsical, sly, and sometimes satirical text through lectures and other special events, youth programs, book discussions, film screenings, and a special art exhibit — all free.
Additional details are available at mymcpl.org/alice.
Readers will be able to connect with Alice through a wide range of free public events, programs, and book discussions.
The Great City | Great Read celebration of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is co-presented by the Kansas City Public Library and Mid-Continent Public Library.
Made possible by a generous contribution from Polsinelli and its National Real Estate Practice.
With additional support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
