Reading and Writing with Anne Frank from the Anne Frank Center USA and is on display from February 6 to March 9. We are so excited to be able to offer this amazing traveling exhibit to the public – never before in Pennsylvania! We are in the process of planning programs and events to highlight this incredible exhibit that will help us all get to know Anne Frank as a writer and to learn what books Anne read that were smuggled into the Secret Annex.
Reading & Writing with Anne Frank is a project where the exhibition serves as the starting point. The exhibition is specially designed for young people and provides an overview of the personal life of the Frank family. In addition, the exhibition zooms in on Anne’s writing talent. Anne’s Story Book and beautiful sentences book are introduced.
Large groups will be welcome, teachers are encouraged to bring their classes, and this would be a wonderful experience for homeschool families. If you have any questions about this exhibit, please contact Nancy or Barbara at the Library.
