This Saturday, enjoy a reading of "Preaching to the Chickens" by E.B. Lewis (5-8 years old).

About the book: 
Critically acclaimed author Jabari Asim and Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator E. B. Lewis give readers a fascinating glimpse into the boyhood of Civil Rights leader John Lewis. John wants to be a preacher when he grows up—a leader whose words stir hearts to change, minds to think, and bodies to take action. But why wait? When John is put in charge of the family farm’s flock of chickens, he discovers that they make a wonderful congregation! So he preaches to his flock, and they listen, content under his watchful care, riveted by the rhythm of his voice.

$25 per adult with one child; additional children $10 each. 
Books available to purchase in the Museum Shop.
