Alice In Your Pocket
If you live in Seattle, well you're lucky indeed, because on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday 27 November, starting promptly at 10 a.m., the entire text of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll will be read aloud, in one standing, by your neighborhood pocket poet, A. K. “Mimi” Allin. This reading will take place in a cozy neighborhood pocket park in Fremont called Fremont Peak Park.
Free to dogs, mice, horses, monkeys & humans. Especially free to cats. No crows please. Tea & cookies encouraged. Puppets provided for the nervous. Join anytime, early or late. Bring a chair & read along or just close your eyes & listen. There will be bread & butter & marmalade. When the Queen shrieks, “To be con-tin-ued…” get ready for games, a race & even a court hearing! Some rain, some shine & some light breezes expected. Dress appropriate. And remember, like every good story, this one will end. But for a good story to end, it must first begin. So.. shall we begin?
Alice In Your Pocket intends to bring live readings of Alice In Wonderland to all of the pocket parks in Seattle over the coming year. Look out for Alice In Your Pocket flyers on telephone poles in your neighborhood of check back in here.
