What Nonsense!


This will be a day for talking, reading, writing, and drawing... absolute Nonsense. We may find out what Slithy Toves look like; we may even discover the recipe for Gosky Patties; it's impossible to be certain.

The work of Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Spike Milligan, and John Hegley will be useful as we attempt to be as ridiculous as possible in stories, poems, pictures, and nonsense models.
Even if you are a very sensible person you will enjoy this day.
