Just in time for the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, the Library is hosting author Karen Lange, who will talk about her new kids' book, 1607: A New Look At Jamestown, on Monday, May 14 at 7 p.m. Kids ages 8 and older would get the most out of the presentation; adults also are cordially invited.
Lange, a Takoma Park resident, works as a writer at National Geographic, which published her book. In the book, Lange highlights how the astonishing 1994 discovery of the 1607 James Fort has spurred historians to change some of their ideas about life in the Virginia settlement, including the relationship between the British and the Virginia Indian tribes. Come learn more about these discoveries! Call 301-891-7259 to sign up, or if you have any questions.Posted by The Bee at May 9, 2007 04:39 PM
