This family event celebrates the publication of a new children’s book by acclaimed Toledo author Jan Wahl. Titled “Hedy and Her Amazing Invention,” the book teaches kids about the pioneering scientific work and inspiring courage of Hedy Lamarr, the famous Hollywood actress who fought against prejudice and stereotypes to become an accomplished inventor. Morgana W. Wallace's epic collages elevate Hedy to myth-like status. Participants should meet at the Museum’s Family Center at noon to create their own collages, musical instruments, and ornaments. At 2 p.m. everyone joins the music parade to the Little Theater for Wahl’s reading, which includes projections of the book’s spectacular illustrations.
