Meet the Author! Maira Kalman

Saturday, March 15, 2:00 pm

Ticket cost: price of museum admission

Recommended for ages 7 and up


Maira Kalman returns with her new children’s book Thomas Jefferson, whom she describes “optimistic and complex and tragic and wrong and courageous.” Families will listen to her read excerpts from the book—which aims to cover everything about Jefferson—as well as describe her research process, and hold a book signing.

Fans of this Founding Father will learn surprising facts, and children who are new to Jefferson will be introduced to a great and complex man. Kalman's painterly illustrations add to the uniqueness and whimsy of the book.
