"In Defense of Wonderland" speech, 5/15 at Louisa May Alcott house

I'll be speaking this Friday, May 15, at 7 p.m. at the School of Philosophy at the Orchard House, 399 Lexington Road, Concord, MA (Louisa May Alcott's home). My subject is, "In Defense of Wonderland (and how one frazzled mother clawed her way in)." I'll discuss children's fantasy, its relevance and significance to me, the importance of creativity, and the imperative for humility. All in 45 minutes or so! Books will be available for purchase and signing. This is sponsored by The Fusion Group ( and is open to the public. RSVP is appreciated, though, for seating purposes. Contact me at for more information.


  1. How exciting. I wish I lived near enough to attend.

  2. I just can't think of many things cooler than that. Wow!
