Read & Feed: Subject – “Orphan’s Train”
Thursday / March. 31, 2016 / 6:00 / $15
Over dinner, participants will be discussing “orphan trains”, a movement that began in the United States in the 1850’s and continued into the 1920’s. Nearly a quarter million children from East coast cities were transported to the Midwest where families selected them, often to help as servants or farm laborers. Most of the children were living in orphanages, or on the streets, or simply abandoned.
The basis for our discussion is a book called Orphan Train written by Christina Baker Kline. But there are many other books written on this topic, available at the Library or at the MACK. Any books written on the topic will give you the basic background for the Read and Feed discussion. Read and Feed begins at 6pm with drinks and appetizers. Dinner and discussion will follow. The cost is $15. For more information, contact Janice at the MACK.
