AT CAPACITY: When the Shadbush Blooms

Wednesday 01 August 2018
10:15AM - 11:00AM
Penn Museum


Today when a Lenape girl ventures to the stream to fish for shad, she knows that another girl did the same generations before. Through the cycle of the seasons, what is important has remained the same: being with family, knowing when berries are ripe for picking, listening to stories in a warm home. Told by Traditional Sister and Contemporary Sister, each from her own time, this is a book about tradition and about change. Then and now are not so very different when the shadbush blooms. This program complements the World Wonders: Animal Play program.

This event is at capacity.
