A National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction, Never Caught is the eye-opening narrative of Ona Judge, George and Martha Washington’s runaway slave, who risked everything for a better life. Now adapted in this young readers’ edition for ages 9-13, the Museum is pleased to present the book’s launch event in connection with Hamilton Was Here.
Join Erica Armstrong Dunbar, Charles and Mary Beard Professor of History at Rutgers University-Camden and Kathleen Van Cleve, Senior Lecturer in Cinema & Media Studies at UPenn for a talk and book signing. This special author talk is specifically designed for pre-teens, but all ages are welcome.
Write the Revolution
Inspired by our flagship book series Read the Revolution, the Museum is proud to present Write the Revolution, a series of author talks and workshops for children and teens. Through the magic of storytelling, historical fiction puts people at the center of history, presents multiple perspectives and brings the past to life.
