Anne Frank exhibit to open Jan. 8

Dec 24, 2014 07:05AM ● Published by Community News Service

The traveling exhibit “Reading & Writing with Anne Frank” is set to be on display from Jan. 8 through Feb. 20 at the Burlington County Library location in Westampton.

The exhibit focuses on the literary work found in the famous writer’s surviving five notebooks and 300 loose pages of writing. Student visitors are encouraged to develop their own voices through writing, just as Frank discovered her own voice while writing her diary in hiding from the Nazi persecutions during the second World War.

The exhibit is part of the library’s expansion and renovation project and will be on display in a new exhibit space, which offers a fresh way to share stories about history, science and culture throughout the year.

Anne Frank Center USA Director of Outreach and Exhibitions Hilary Eddy Stipelman will present two related workshops at the library in January, one for teachers and another for the general public. Registration is required for both programs.

The Reading and Writing with Anne Frank Teacher Workshop will be held on Thursday, Jan. 8 from 4-6 p.m. in the Westampton library auditorium. 

Teachers will examine the life and times of Anne Frank through her diary, family photographs, and documentary film. This interactive workshop will provide opportunities to make connections with literacy, history, and visual learning themes as participants identify and further develop discussion topics for use in the classroom.
