DEN­TON — A Lit­er­ary Evening with Lewis Car­roll de­lighted a sold-out crowd at the Caro­line County Pub­lic Li­brary in Den­ton with an evening of good food, en­ter­tain­ment, words and wit.

An en­thu­si­as­tic cast of char­ac­ters, in­clud­ing Alice, Twee­dle Dee, Twee­dle Dum, the Mad Hat­ter and the White Rab­bit brought a se­lec­tion of Car­roll’s writ­ings to life.

Lo­cal quil­ters en­tered Alice in Won­der­land-themed quilts and wall hang­ings in a quilt con­test. Linda Don­ahue’s “Ms.” won the award for Most Artistry, and He­len Rolling’s “Tea Time” won the Most Crafts­man­ship award. Mon­ica Aga­paloglou’s “More Tea” won the Most Whim­si­cal award and was voted the Peo­ple’s Choice by the event’s au­di­ence.

Both Don­ahue’s quilt and Lisa Oren­dorf’s “Tea Time Highlights” were do­nated to the Fiber Arts Cen­ter of the Eastern Shore (FACES) for a silent auc­tion. All the quilts are on view through Nov. 24 at the Fiber Arts Cen­ter at 7 N. Fourth St., Den­ton.

This an­nual pro­gram is co-spon­sored by the Caro­line County Coun­cil of Arts and the Caro­line County Pub­lic Li­brary.
