This week, the Winslow House offers a special children’s program–Thursday, August 13th at 9:00 am, when astronomer William Luzader offers a program on telescopes and the stars. It is the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s use of the telescope and children will be able to learn to use the telescope while also viewing a portable planetarium.
On Friday, August 14th at 7:00 pm, author Hobson Woodward will be on hand to discuss his book “A Brave Vessel”, which discusses how shipwrecked passengers marooned on Bermuda survived and inspired William Shakespeare to write his play “The Tempest”. Additionally, there will be a film crew on-site to film the lecture for C-SPAN cable television!
Tickets for these and for all events are online at www.winslowhouse.org.
