What do Martha the last passenger pigeon, a fragment from Plymouth Rock, and Julia Child’s kitchen have in common? Each of these objects tells an important story about the diverse history of America. These and 98 other objects are part of The Smithsonian’s History of America in 101 Objects, the latest publication by the Smithsonian’s Under Secretary for History, Art, and Culture, Richard Kurin.

Join us for a unique lecture and book signing with Richard Kurin and experience how each featured object comes to vivid life, providing a tactile connection to American history.
