The Kenneth Grahame Society (ALS) is an online society and resource for the works of Kenneth Grahame and the Wind In The Willows expanded universe. Unlike traditional literary societies there are no current plans to hold society meetings. As an alternative to physically meeting there is a discussion forum where members can post comments and conduct discussions at any time. This will be complemented by organized online meetings at regular intervals - initially scheduled as eight meetings per year.
A number of collaborative projects, some of which will reflect on existing works and some of which will promote an expanded universe, will constitute the main creative focus of the society.
The society is for Kenneth Grahame readers, literature students, potential sequel writers, illustrators and everyone else who appreciates the works of Kenneth Grahame. Membership is free and members from all over the world are welcome to join.
