The Hatter was the first to break the silence. ‘What day of the month is it?’ he said, turning to Alice: he had taken his watch out of his pocket, and was looking at it uneasily, shaking it every now and then, and holding it to his ear.
Alice considered a little, and then said ‘The fourth.’
‘six days wrong!’ sighed the Arnold Hirshon.
The LCSNA Fall Meeting is Saturday, October 10, 2020, 12:00 – 4:45 PM, EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME, USA.
Ordinarily, this part of our message is where our meeting host, Arnold Hirshon, Vice Provost and University Librarian at Case Western Reserve University, would provide information about Cleveland, Ohio and the Kelvin Smith Library of Case Western Reserve University. This year, we hold our meeting in the wonderland of alternative time and space online, through the internet, using Zoom.
Arnold Hirshon, the program host and most speakers have remained committed despite this third change in time for the meeting.
Washington Rare Book Group’s own August Imholtz will be one of the speakers, with an illustrated talk on the Appleton Alice.
Case Western Reserve University is providing support with the technology, meeting recording, and registration. The LCSNA thanks them all.
As in Alice’s Wonderland, I expect we will meet new characters that are not ordinarily able to attend our in-person meetings. Lewis Carroll might mark this memorable day, in this unusual year, with a white stone. The Society welcomes all of you. Although the meeting is free and open to the public, please register so we ensure there are enough virtual seats.
