Juneteenth Celebration


Spend Juneteenth with us at the museum! Come and hear “The Sweet Adventures of Henry P. Twist,” a faerie tale / fantasy about a master pastry chef who rediscovers his youth in a land of faeries, myth, magic and the most scrumptious sweets ever imagined!

Featuring Mr. Van Alstyne, a fantasy and folklore author who writes for children and adults alike. He draws on his experiences as a chef making cakes, cookies, sugarplums and other tasty confections. As a Navy veteran, Mr. Van Alstyne has traveled the world learning about local folklore and mythology. A devotee of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson and Roald Dahl, his books fit into the faerie tale and children’s book genres. His Henry P. Twist series is unique. The protagonist is an elderly baker. This makes the series great for grandparents to read to their grandchildren. Original printing of book 1 (published by IUniverse) in hardcover ($11) and soft cover ($6) will be available for purchase afterwards.

RSVP online if you plan to attend. Admission is free.
