the real Alice
Saturday 7 July
Two books with a connection to Alice Liddell - the real Alice. Readings and signings from the authors.
After Such Kindness
The relationship between Lewis Carroll and his muse Alice Liddell is explored by Gaynor Arnold in her new novel. Gaynor, who was a Booker Prize and Orange prize nominee for her fictional treatment of Charles Dickens' marriage in Girl In a Blue Dress, will be reading and signing copies of what is sure to be one of the literary highlights of the year.
