Join illustrator Chris Riddell for a celebration of the classic book

This is an online event hosted on the British Library platform. Bookers are sent a link in advance giving access and can watch at any time for 48 hours after the start time.

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, appeared 150 years ago this year. Lewis Carroll’s fantastical book takes Alice off through the looking-glass on a second adventure, to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first.

Following on from his exquisite edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, one of our finest illustrators, Chris Riddell, has now brought Through the Looking Glass – and more of Lewis Carroll’s iconic characters – to vibrant, colourful life.

Join Chris and our actors for a celebration of this masterpiece of nonsense, with readings and live illustration.

Suitable for those aged 8 and above.

Buy a copy of Through the Looking Glass for £25 at checkout (with free UK postage) and attend the event at no extra cost.* The first 50 copies ordered will be signed by Chris Riddell.

Chris Riddell is an accomplished artist and the political cartoonist for the Observer. He has enjoyed great acclaim for his books for children. His work for Macmillan also includes the bestselling Ottoline books and The Emperor of Absurdia. Chris has been honoured with an OBE in recognition of his illustration and charity work and was the UK Children's Laureate from 2015 to 2017.

This event is repeated on Sunday 4 July.

*Please note. An additional postage charge of £5 applies for orders from outside the UK. Books purchased will normally be dispatched within seven days after the event. Please ensure your address is up to date on your British Library account.
