On Sunday, September 27, 2015, the New Castle Historical Society and Horace Greeley House Museum will host a children’s education program to explore the fascinating history of the printing press and its great influence on society.
The program, which is co-sponsored by the Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival (one of the largest children’s book festivals in the metropolitan region), will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the history of the printing press, Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune, journal writing in the 19th century, and about Chappaqua’s many own children’s book authors. Program participants will have the opportunity to see one of Greeley’s actual type stands. Participants will also have the chance to use mini-printing presses to make their own book pages to take home.
This free program will be held at the Horace Greeley House (100 King St. Chappaqua, NY 10514) on Sunday, September 27, 2015 from 2 pm – 4pm. The program is recommended for children up to 10 years old.
