MSU Libraries celebrate the very merry 150th (un)birthday of ‘Alice in Wonderland’

Nov 20, 2015

A new exhibit at the MSU Libraries celebrates the 150th anniversary of "Alice in Wonderland." Current State's April Van Buren took a tour.


On November 26, 1865, English mathematician Charles Dodgson (you might know him better as Lewis Carroll) published "Alice in Wonderland." The iconic children’s book went on to influence everyone from surrealist painters to psychedelic rock bands.

In honor of its 150th anniversary, the MSU Library has pulled together an exhibit of "Alice" related materials from its collection. It's called "A Very Merry unBirthday to Alice! Celebrating 150 Years of Wonderland."

Current State’s April Van Buren talks with Andrew Lundeen, who does work in special collections at the MSU Library, about "Alice’s" influential legacy.
