Book Signing at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History
 December 5, 2009
I was invited by the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, to sign Abe Lincoln: The Boy Who Loved Books and Colonial Voices: Hear Them Speak as part of their Holiday Festival. Although it was a snowy, blustery day, the Museum was crowded. The families who came were very enthusiastic and obviously loved history and books. What a pleasure to be there! The museum staff was very welcoming and helpful. Afterward, we went to Ford's Theater, where I signed their stock of Abe Lincoln: The Boy Who Loved Books.

Signing Announcement

The Museum's Lincoln exhibit was  currently running in celebration of his 200th birthday. And Abe Lincoln: The Boy Who Loved Books has a universal message. It was a wonderful day and I felt honored to be invited.

Signing Visitors

Although the weather was a nasty mix of snow and rain, the Museum was thronged with visitors.

At the Smithsonian, history is a family affair.

Finding Whisper Sticks

What would it be like to wear whisper sticks for misbehaving? You will find these in Larry Day's illustration of the dame school in Colonial Voices: Hear Them Speak.
