The Kid Who Helped Leak the Pentagon Papers: Robert Ellsberg in Conversation with Steve Sheinkin
Saturday February 3, 2 pm
Recommended for families with kids ages 9 and up
Free with museum admission. Advanced reservations recommended as seating is limited.
Acclaimed children’s author Steve Sheinkin (Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War) will talk with Robert Ellsberg who, at 13, helped his father Daniel Ellsberg photocopy the Pentagon Papers so they could be distributed to the press. Using footage from the documentary The Most Dangerous Man in America, Sheinkin and Ellsberg will help families understand one of the biggest scandals of the 20th century, the "leak" that sparked them all. This program is in honor of our exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945-1975. Q&A and book signing to follow.

Please note: We encourage families to purchase reserved-row seating to this event in advance as tickets are limited. The unreserved rows will be available to museum visitors on a first-come, first-served basis.
