Some of you may be visiting the blog for the first time because of the National Council on Public History’s article, which was cross-posted on their blog. So a very special welcome to my fellow public historians!
If you’re just getting started, might I recommend the following posts?
The Manifesto, so to speak (or my thesis, for you academic types)
A Good Day (using children’s literature at the museum)
Wanting to Know More (biographies of some key kidlist history authors)
Let Me Count the Ways. . . In Love with Calpurnia Tate (one of my favorite recent historical fiction books)
Meeting Laura (my first visit to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Mansfield)
Welcome–I hope you’ll come back soon!
