Visit to the Lewis Carroll collection of Alan & Alison Tannenbaum

September 24, 2022, 2 pm, Tannenbaum home

On Saturday, September 24th, Ticknorites visited the home of Alan and Alison Tannenbaum to learn about their incredible Lewis Carroll collection. Alan delivered a presentation on the history of the four Alice books, showing related items from his collection along the way, and all the while, we were surrounded by the vast breadth of that collection, from books, comics, and movies, to magic lantern slides, blankets, and switchplate covers. After Alan’s talk, we were free to roam around the library and enjoy a delicious spread of goodies served on Alice-themed china (of course!). Many thanks to Alan and Alison for their hospitality and for introducing us to their Wonderland!
