Join us for an illustrated lecture and workshop exploring the historical importance of Dutch childhood activities in the 17th century. Donna Barnes and Peter Rose, co-authors of Childhood Pleasures: Dutch Children in the Seventeenth Century, will discuss the similarities and differences in Dutch children's lives in Holland and in New Netherland during the 1600s. They will use art and food as an enjoyable and effective means for engaging today's students in understanding the past.

This lecture is sponsored by the New Netherland Institute and the Dutch Consulate and is free, but reservations are required. Light refreshments will be served. The first 20 teachers to RSVP will receive a copy of Childhood Pleasures: Dutch Children in the Seventeenth Century. Reservations can be made through the Museum of the City of New York.
