Calling all 8-12 year olds who want to get out of the house during Feburary Vacation week! Visit the Old Manse to learn more about the writers who lived here, like Emerson, Hawthorne, and create a journal to record your own thoughts during this drop in event. You'll start by sewing together blank pages to create the inside of your journal, and finish your journal by decorating the cover. Your journal will be a place where you can record your own thoughts about the people, places, and events that you experience. Who knows? Maybe someday they will become the beginnings of the next best-seller!
