The Wartime Escape of Margret and H. A. Rey's Journey from France is open through June 30. This is a new exhibit. Margret and H. A Rey are the husband-wife team that created the Curious George series of children's books. Their escape from Nazi occupied France was a harrowing one filled with near misses and suspenseful twists. All along they carried the manuscript for the mischievous monkey we all came to know as Curious George.
Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player in the NFL, will speak about his decision to "come out" in the often hostile and homophobic world of professional sports and will deliver his message of "Start Where You Are, Use what you Have and Do What you Can."
