Lewis Carroll and the Supernatural - A Talk by Jenny Woolf
Art Workers' Guild, London
10 April 2015
Lewis Carroll, was fascinated by the occult, magic and ghosts, and was a very early member of the Society for Psychical Research. Jenny Woolf, delves into this tangled web of Victorian creepiness, examines some of the weirder things that Carroll wrote and read, considers possible medical reasons for the experiences he might have had, and casts light on the endless battle that raged in his own mind between religion, logic and the world of the unreal.
The talk will be preceded by a 10 minute performance called 'Carroll Can't Concentrate' by Alan Thomas.
Venue: Gradidge Room (First Floor) Art Workers' Guild, Queen Square, London.
Doors open: 18:15; meeting starts at: 19:00.
This meeting is open to all, but is likely to be well attended. We recommend that you reserve a place to check on availability of spare places. Please contact Sarah Stanfield by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
