David Day
for an illustrated lecture

For our 29th Helen E. Stubbs Memorial Lecture, David Day will lecture on fantasy literature and examine how it has invaded and transformed our world, from Utopia and Lilliput to Narnia, Oz and Middle-earth. David is the author of Alice in Wonderland Decoded and many other distinguished works on the fantasy element of popular literature, especially fiction for young readers. The main focus of the evening will be on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Following the lecture, please join us upstairs at the Osborne Collection to meet David, and to see the exhibit "Imaginary Places and Enchanted Realms," celebrating kingdoms of the imagination in children's books and book art.

Admission is free. A sale of Friends of Osborne merchandise will precede the lecture. Doors open at 7 p.m. Questions? Please call (416) 393-7753
