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 help families understand one of the biggest scandals of the 20th century, the "leak" that sparked them all. This program is held in conjunction with 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
