Story Time: One Boy’s War

Saturday, May 11 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. Auditorium Lobby

The realities of the battlefield, from the dangers of new weaponry to the poor conditions of the trenches, quickly dampened their excitement. Join Museum and Memorial educators for a family-friendly craft and reading of “One Boy’s War” by Lynn Huggins-Cooper.
