Upcoming Event

This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, reservations are required for school groups interested in attending. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

A girl tells the story of her train journey from North Carolina to New York City in short, perceptive poems. She and her family are part of the Great Migration. Each leg of the trip brings new revelations as she looks out the train window: folks working in fields give way to the Delaware River, the curtain that separates the colored car is removed, and glimpses of the freedom and opportunity the family hopes to find come into view. A child’s eye-view of the Great Migration from the award-winning husband and wife team behind Finding Langston, Before She was Harriet, Benny Goodman & Teddy Wilson and Just a Lucky So and So. Ages 4-8.
