APH (American Printing House for the Blind) November Museum Program

Hi APH Museum Friends –

It’s time to remind you of our next Museum program.  It’s called Mapheads and it takes place next Saturday, November 16, from 10:30-12:30.  Mapheads is the name given those crazy people study atlases with endless fascination and who prefer to find their way with a diagram of streets rather than a list of directions. (I’m a dedicated maphead myself.)   It’s more of a temporary exhibit than a program, with  little maps, big maps, weird maps, city/state/world maps,old maps, new maps and more on display, all for you to explore.  Plus we’ll tell you how they are made and a bit about the people who made them. For young people (including people who are young at heart), there’s an area in which you can make your own tactile map.  The event is for both blind and sighted people. You can come anytime between 10:30 and 12:30 and stay as long as you like.  I hope to see some of you there!
