Main Event: 7
9:30 p.m.

Featuring cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, games, music, and dancing in the Rose Garden.  


Lewis Carroll’s “Wonderland” is a place where different is normal, and where wondrous, remarkable, and fabulous things happen every day. 

 

Please join us as we celebrate our differences and highlight the recent 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. The Huntington is one of the few libraries that owns both the suppressed 1865 version and the official publication of 1866. Our copy bears the autograph of George Dalziel, the engraver of the illustrations that will be represented throughout the Rose Garden on this magical evening. The VIP reception includes a viewing of these first editions.
