"Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll/"Splin­tered" by A G Howard

  • Location TBD

    Location TBD, Portland, OR (map)

    45.511791 -122.675629

  • We're having a tea party! Once I have the location, we will compare the original "Alice in Wonderland" with a contemporary retelling in the first book of the Splinter series.

    Per Goodreads: This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence.

    Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

    When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

    I've changed the date so I have more time to locate the best place and everyone has more time to read both books. Note, time may change depending on the venue.

    Once I have the tea shop located, I'll adjust the time. Is there a time that's better for you?

      Well it says 11pm-2am. So guessing that was a typo ?:)

      Yes, that certainly is. I'd be looking for a bar instead of a teashop.

    There's Lady Di's British Store and Tea Room in Lake Oswego if your willing to move this to a Saturday. It is closed on Sundays.
