Reading Into History

in Essential Ramblings

Looking for good summer reading? Want to meet your favorite authors and hear about their creative process? Want to learn more about the time period in which the story is set? Reading into History is a book club for young historians.   Each month families read a historical fiction book and participate in on-line discussions with authors, educators, and other families. Get ideas for discussion, ask authors questions, and respond to other book club members’ posts! At the end of each month families can attend a Book Wrap event, where they will share reactions to the book, see cool museum objects and documents related to the story, and meet other historical fiction fans! Ages 9-12. E-mail familyprograms@nyhistory.org or click here  for more information.
