Escape the heat this summer and go on an adventure in the great indoors! Have you ever stood next to an authentic 18th century carriage, seen a pair of glasses worn by President Abraham Lincoln, himself, or gotten up close and personal with the wooden leg of one of America’s Founding Fathers? If you said no to any of the above, then this is your chance!

New hunts with new objects will be appearing throughout the summer, so you can visit New-York Historical Society and the DiMenna Children’s History Museum again and again!

The young adult book – co-written by Elspeth Leacock and Susan Buckley – gives readers a first-hand account of what it was like to protest nonviolently to gain the right to vote for African-Americans and proves that kids can be heroes, too. Presentation will include photos, newsreels, excerpts read from the book, and a Q&A.
