Have you ever seen a 400-year-old book up-close? In this special program celebrating the arrival of Shakespeare’s first folio, kids ages 8 and up (along with their grown-ups) will spend an afternoon with Chief Conservator Alan Balicki. Families will go behind the scenes to the N-YHS’ on-site conservation lab, examine the 17th-century folio, and see in-process treatments of authentic documents (folio construction, mending of tears, surface cleaning documents, and more). After the lab visit, families will create and sew their own basic folio to take home.
