Annie Inglis was just 9 years old when Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” was published. As a young girl, she likely delighted in this fantastical world. Little did Annie know that only 10 years later, she would inspire a movement that would create a community never known before.
