This summer, join the Heurich House Museum and our community partners for a monthly story and craft time in the Castle Garden.
This year’s theme is “Immigrant Stories.” Together we’ll explore the history of people who have migrated to our country, while discussing what immigration looks like today in our own city. The hour will start with a read aloud of a book exploring our theme and will conclude with a craft activity!
Saturday, September 16th • 1-2:30pm*
The DC-based 1882 Foundationwill lead families through a story time exploring the biography of animator Tyrus Wong, the Chinese American immigrant responsible for bringing Disney's Bambi to life, in the book "Paper Son.”
The 1882 Foundation seeks to broaden public awareness of the history and continuing significance of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and work to strengthen public education about the Chinese and Asian American experience.
*This date was rescheduled from Saturday, August 26th • 1-2:30pm
