Lauren from The USS Constituion Museum told me about an event they are having to celebrate American Girl's new historical, Caroline Abbott. Kathleen Ernst, the author of the Caroline books, will even be there!
This sounds like so much fun for all of you Massachusetts American Girl Fans! Here are the details...
"Dress up, bring your dolls and enjoy an 1812 afternoon tea at the USS
Constitution Museum on Sunday, October 7. Meet Kathleen Ernst, the
author of the newest American Girl Historical Character Series,
Caroline Abbott, at her first Boston-area appearance!
Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Caroline's world and how Kathleen developed the character. The presentation will be followed by a Question & Answer session and the opportunity to meet the author, get your books personalized, and take photos. There will also be craft activities and door prizes. Menu will include lemonade, tea, and a choice of desserts. Afterwards, you can visit the USS Constitution Museum and take a tour of USS Constitution, a ship that fought in the War of 1812, like those Caroline knew at Sackett’s Harbor."
Doesn't that sound awesome?! You can find out more information and order tickets at their website: http://store.ussconstitutionmuseum.org/collections/tea-party
I live really far away from MA and can't go, but my dolls decided to have a tea party of their own! :)
If you get to go to the Caroline Tea Party event, I'd love to see your pictures or hear from you! :)
Have you read any of Caroline's books yet? What do you think of them? I'm hoping to be able to get them from my library soon!
