Lewis Carroll Society - The Modern Alice in Japan @ Art Worker's Guild | England | United Kingdom

The Lewis Carroll Society is hosting a talk on the 27th April: ‘The Modern Alice in Japan’. This is a free talk and is an exploration of Japanese adaptions of the Alice books – from the beautifully illustrated work of artist Kusama Yayoi to comics, film, animation, stationery and clothes.

The speaker, Amanda Kennell, is an expert in modern Japanese literature and visual media. Her previous work has traced Japan’s reception of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland novels from their arrival in 1899 until today through adaptations in a variety of media.
