See the 43 Wonderland Award Entries and Congratulate the Winners at April 5 Reception
Students from USC and other participating institutions have submitted 43 entries in the Ninth-Annual Wonderland Award competition. Winners will soon be announced at a reception on Friday, April 5. Join us in the Friends of the USC Libraries Lecture Hall (DML 240) at 5:00 p.m. to browse through the imaginative submissions and congratulate the winners.
The Wonderland Award is an annual multidisciplinary competition showcasing the creative and interpretive skills of students from USC and other participating institutions as they draw inspiration for new creative works from the G. Edward Cassady, M.D., and Margaret Elizabeth Cassady, R.N., Lewis Carroll Collection. The contest is made possible through a generous gift by Linda Cassady, who created the award in 2005 to promote the collection of books, recordings, academic papers, and other items related to the nineteenth-century author and polymath Lewis Carroll.
A new Special Collections exhibit on the second floor of Doheny Memorial Library celebrates the annual competition and the Cassady Collection. Highlights from past Wonderland Award contests are on display alongside selected books and artifacts from the Cassady Collection, providing a fanciful look at the world Lewis Carroll created in his Alice stories.
