The Rosenbach, 2008–2010 Delancey Place
During this hands-on event, turn the pages of preserved rare books written by Indigenous peoples, manuscripts penned by some of the first European colonists, and early printed U.S. government documents related to Native American tribes. Guided by passages from There There, we will handle original historical artifacts while discussing erasure, privilege, authorship, access to the printing press, and the critical role of personal storytelling in constructing accurate historical narratives.
$25 general admission, $12.50 for Rosenbach members, free for Delancey Society members. Click here to purchase tickets.
