In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s classic “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” the Young Readers Center in the Library of Congress hosted Alice herself, who read from her adventures and led a parade through the halls of the Library’s Thomas Jefferson Building.

The Library of Congress has multiple illustrated editions of Carroll’s noted work, including this digitized copy and an 1866 edition that was also the first regularly published edition.
