Family Trees: A Celebration of Children's Literature
November 21, 2012 - January 1, 2013
A love of books and reading is a lifelong treasure passed from adult to child, from generation to generation. The 17th annual Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature at the Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts gives Concord’s renowned literary tradition a creative twist. From November 21, 2012 through January 1, 2013, the Museum’s galleries are filled with 36 fanciful trees of all shapes and sizes, decorated with original ornaments inspired by acclaimed children’s storybooks and contemporary picture book favorites. This year, the Lead Sponsor for Family Trees is Barefoot Books; Media Sponsor is Massachusetts Teachers Association. Proceeds from Family Trees, organized by the Museum’s Guild of Volunteers, benefit the Concord Museum’s education initiatives.
