JANUARY 30 - MAY 16, 2009

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the Wonderland Award, a multidisciplinary competition inspired by the work of Lewis Carroll. Since 2005, USC students have created everything from poems, essays, and novels to films, paintings, and sculptures. Their entries reflect the imaginative range of Carroll himself, a polymath known for his logic puzzles, nonsense poetry, and photography, along with The Hunting of the Snark and the Alice books. Sponsored by Friends of the USC Libraries member Linda Cassady, the Wonderland Award encourages students to explore the G. Edward Cassady, M.D., and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N., Lewis Carroll Collection held in Doheny Memorial Library’s special collections. Learn more about the exhibition, collection, and award.
