Alice in Educationland Live in Mexico

Illustration by Liesbeth Zweiger

I was very pleased to be invited to read some Chapters of the Alice stories at the Latin American Heads conference in Mexico City yesterday. We had some interesting discussions based around the questions posed by each chapter. The feedback was generous and we all had a few laughs as well.

The presentation I used contains the questions as well as some excellent illustrations of Alice from a number of different artists from Tenniel to Dali and Steadman. There is also some Alice related music from Jefferson Airplane, to Avril Lavigne via Tom Waits. The special treat in chapter 5, or is it 4 is some pictures from Suman Vaze that have nothing to do with Alice!

The presentation is here (posted by popular demand). Probably download to see it. Let the frames run for about 5 minutes each if you want to see the pictures. The text is not there but here. And, in true Alice style the chapter numbering is different on the presentation from the website.

Happy reading.
