Description of Pictures: NPC Children's Book Rap with Deborah Kalb: George Washington & The Magic Hat
Travel back in time to meet George Washington during a magical morning for the whole family at the National Press Club. On Saturday, Aug. 27 at 11 a.m., the NPC’s Book and Author Committee will present a family-friendly Book Rap with Deborah Kalb, author of The President and Me: George Washington and The Magic Hat. The Book Rap is $5 for Press Club members, $10 for non-members. All children are free. This event is a fundraiser for the non-profit National Press Club Journalism Institute so no outside books or memorabilia are allowed. The book, targeted to youngsters seven and up, tells the tale of a fifth-grade boy struggling to find his place after his best friend abandons him. A visit to Mount Vernon lands him in the 18th Century where George and Martha Washington help him learn about history, himself, and the nature of friendships and families. The Book Rap will feature crafts, magic, refreshments, a presentation by Kalb, an audience question-and-answer session, and book signing.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2016 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Seven relatively short trips this year:
a Civil War Trust conference in Gettysburg, PA,
a trip out west for San Diego Comic-Con (including sites in Utah, Nevada, and California),
a quick trip to Michigan for Uncle Wayne's funeral,
a trip to West Point, NY for another Civil War Trust conference (visiting Manhattan on the way),
two two-day return trips to Manhattan, NY, and
a Civil Rights site trip to Alabama during the November elections. Being in places where people died to preserve the rights of minority voters made the Trumputin election even more depressing.
Number of photos taken this year: just over 610,000.
