Book Talk: The Way We Worked
The National Churchill Museum announces BookTalk: The Way We Worked, a book discussion program for The Way We Worked traveling exhibition.
The Smithsonian’s The Way We Worked exhibit gives Missourians the opportunity to discover the theme of work and its impact on our culture. From February 11-March 10, 2012, the National Churchill Museum in Fulton, Missouri, is hosting this exhibition.
To engage children, the Missouri Humanities Council has created a book discussion program for family members, caregivers, and teachers, introducing them to children’s books that explore the exhibit themes. BookTalk: The Way We Worked helps adults discover engaging ways to think and talk about books and stories with children. Led by gifted storyteller Steve Otto from Kansas City, participants will meet fascinating characters and delve into their stories in the two-hour discussion programs. Participants will read and discuss five children’s books and then take the books home to share with their children.
The event is open to parents, grandparents, teachers, and others who work with children 0-8 years of age. Only 20 seats are available for this workshop. Reservations are required. This is a free event.

The program will be held February 19, 2012, from 1 p.m.-3 p.m, at the National Churchill Museum, 501 Westminster Ave, Fulton, MO 65251.
