Event Details

Bring your video camera and prepare for posterity!

Thanksgiving is about family and every family has stories. Bring your favorite family story to share and then record it to take home as a treasured memento. We’ll set the stage and provide a historic background for your tales. A master storyteller will provide tips and cues to help you make a great presentation and share some stories about important families in history. You’ll tour the DiMenna Children's History Museum to learn more about these folks and end your program in the Barbara K. Lipman Children's History Library to make your storytelling debut. Free with Family Membership or Daily Admission.

Space is limited, advance reservations recommended. RSVP to familyprograms@nyhistory.org.
