On Saturday, April 14, 2012, we welcomed nearly 80 people to the opening reception for "The Lewis Hine Project: Stories of the Lawrence Children," by Joe Manning.
Mr. Manning gave a moving presentation to an audience that included descendants of the children he tells stories about. Please view the pictures from the event (click on image below) and be sure not to miss this wonderful exhibit!
