Literary Blog Hop: Oct 6-9

This week's question: If you could invite any three literary figures from different eras to a Sunday Dinner who would they be?

I would love to have a tea party actually. One like in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. And I would send invitations to Lewis Carroll first of all. It could be no spectacular tea party without him and maybe he could bring Alice, the Mad Hatter and March Hare with him. I'd also love to have Jane Austen at my table. I'm sure she wouldn't turn down an invitation for tea. Maybe C.S. Lewis could join us and please us with a sentence like: "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." That would make a perfect round for me.

How about you? Would you like to join us?


  1. Thanks for joining in-your guests are very interesting? Have you thought about what food they might be served?

    I am now happy to be a follower of your blog

  2. I went with a 'poetry-themed' dinner party myself, and your guest, Lewis Carroll, would fit right in with my group. The two "Alice" books I do try and reread every few years or so. They are downright amazing and brilliant. I think your inclusion of C.S. Lewis quite wonderful too, as he is a giant among thinkers. Yes, I'd like to be a fly on the wall at your dinner party. Count me a follower too. Cheers! Chris

  3. Jane Austen seems a common choice, made my list too. I love your idea of having the characters of Alice in Wonderful come to the dinner party, I would definitely want to be there for that.

  4. Oh! I thought of Lewis Carroll too!....but then I figured the party would be too crazy for me.:D I've got C S Lewis on my final list though... love your choices!

  5. Thank you all for commenting.

    mel - I would serve cucumber sandwiches, muffins, eclairs and yummie stuff like this. And of course a wide tea selection.

    Christopher - thanks for following. A poetry themed dinner party sounds very sophisticated and fun, too.

    Becky - Yeah, Jane is a very desirable dinner guest. I would hope she could read us something, too.

    Risa - I knwo what you mean, Risa. I would see myself struggling all tea time to keep up with Lewis Carroll.

  6. Sabrina-good selection of foods for your very refined guests

  7. Ah, Lewis Carroll would be fantastic!
