Comic Book Group
Thursday August 10, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
This month the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Comic Book Club will read and discuss Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot. Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) have had an immeasurable impact on children's literature and, indeed, the entire spectrum of popular entertainment, with Carroll's absurdist wordplay and surreal scenarios inspiring artistic visionaries from Salvador Dali to John Lennon. Such interesting literary tidbits as those abound in Talbot's lavishly illustrated graphic "entertainment" tracing the historical and cultural influences behind Carroll's masterpieces.
Comic Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.
Location: Community Room, lower level
