Oh, dear, I'm tired. I feel like the Dormouse! But I wanted to say that last year a very nice lady called Cindy Bisaillon came to interview me at length about Lewis Carroll for CBC Radio. I've now heard that the first part of her programme has aired and it's on the website here

Life has been a rush but I am not so much of a Dormouse that I won't be able to stay awake and settle down and listen to it very soon! I'm delighted that CBC wants to give a couple of hours to Lewis Carroll and I can't wait to hear what the other participants say!

Toronto Alice

If you have a creative project you want to get off the ground, try crowdfunding. So many people have so many ideas, and it's fun browsing the various sites. When looking through one of the main sites, Indiegogo, I came across this pitch for a "Toronto Alice" from Jennifer Linton.

Jennifer has already reached her funding goal, and her pitch expires on May 18. I hope the link will stay up for a while after that, but if you would like to take a look at her website, it's here.

I'd love to see Alice's adventures in Toronto.

The Wandsworth Arts festival takes place next month, and Alice fans (specially those with kids) will find it worthwhile to hop along to this corner of SW London to enjoy this new and unusual adaptation of Carroll's story, which begins when Alice loses her cat and ends up in a curious junk shop. Full details are here (click the link), and the show will run on various dates in May, viz: May 3, 2014 Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm, and Saturday 3rd, Sunday 4th, Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th, Saturday 17th, Sunday 18th May at 3pm. Tickets are a very reasonable six pounds.
