NPC Children's Book Rap: George Washington & The Magic Hat
August 27, 2016 11:00 AM
Location: Conference Rooms
Travel back in time to meet George Washington during a magical morning for the whole family at the National Press Club. On Saturday, Aug. 27 at 11 a.m., the NPC's Book and Author Committee will present a family-friendly Book Rap with Deborah Kalb, author of The President and Me: George Washington and The Magic Hat.
The Book Rap is $5 for Press Club members, $10 for non-members. All children are free. This event is a fundraiser for the non-profit National Press Club Journalism Institute so no outside books or memorabilia are allowed.
The book, targeted to youngsters seven and up, tells the tale of a fifth-grade boy struggling to find his place after his best friend abandons him. A visit to Mount Vernon lands him in the 18th Century where George and Martha Washington help him learn about history, himself, and the nature of friendships and families.
The Book Rap will feature crafts, magic, refreshments, a presentation by Kalb, an audience question-and-answer session, and book signing.
