Join us via Zoom for Virtual Museum Stories featuring a live visit from Newbery Medal winning author Karen Cushman
The LIM is thrilled to announce that we will be welcoming award-winning author Karen Cushman to our virtual museum-centered family book club. The featured book will be The Ballad of Lucy Whipple. It is generally recommended for readers in grades 4 through 7, but all with an interest are welcome! Read or listen to the book at home together and then join a museum educator for a themed exploration of paintings and objects in our collection, using the story as a springboard for discovery. The event will include a live visit from Karen Cushman who will answer questions and offer insights about the book, and her process and craft of writing. Registration is FREE, but very limited and will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
Please email email@example.com to reserve your family’s spot today. You will receive and email within 48 hours to confirm your spot or notify if you were put on a waiting list.
