Telling Stories: Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out

Thursday, November 6, 2008 Grades 5-8 Nationally recognized creators of books for
young people, Katherine Paterson, Steven Kellogg and Mary Brigid Barrett, share insights into a recently released book titled Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out. This book is a compilation of history, historical fiction, personal essays, poetry, drama, and original art by 108 renowned authors and illustrators that offers a view of American history as seen through the eyes of the White House. Our White House was created by the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance, NCBLA, in an effort to combat historical illiteracy and to get students excited about reading. The program will be hosted and moderated by children's literature and library expert, Maria Salvadore.

Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, in cooperation with the Prince William Network, offers arts-based educational programming free to teachers and students across the country through the Performing Arts Series.
