Write the Revolution Workshop with L.M. Elliott

How can you use historical documents to spark creativity, reveal characters, and write compelling narratives? Join New York Times best-selling author L.M. Elliott for a special workshop geared towards young authors aged 11 to 15. In this hour-long workshop, Elliott will share how she used historical documents – letters, journals, and memoirs – to discover and create a dramatic, fact-infused story.

This is a drop-off workshop just for children, but parents/guardians are welcome to stay and observe if they wish. Parents/guardians who prefer to drop-off children will be asked to complete registration forms on arrival. All workshop participants are encouraged to stay after the workshop for a special free-with-Museum Admission talk, trivia and book signing by L.M. Elliott at 2 pm. (Please note the workshop fee includes Museum Admission for workshop participating children only.)

L.M. Elliott is author of Hamilton and Peggy! A Revolutionary Friendship and winner of the Grateful American Book prize.

Space is limited; advanced booking is encouraged.
