Heritage Family Day set for June 16 in downtown Houston
The City of Houston has several events planned for Heritage Family Day, which will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 16 in downtown Houston at the Heritage Society.
The Heritage Society is located at 1100 Bagby; visitors are asked to park in the paved lot directly behind Kellum-Noble House and to enter the lot from Allen Parkway inbound.
From noon to 2 p.m., visitors can visit the Heritage Society Museum Gallery to learn about the Baker Playhouse on its journey through Houston from 1893-2010. Illustrator Bill Megenhardt will be on hand with demonstrations, and live entertainment will be provided by singer/songwriter Leah White.
Then from 2-3 p.m. at the Houston Public Library's Norma Meldrum Children's Room in the Julia Ideson Building, children's author Andrea White and Megenhardt will be available to sign the new book "The Very Long Life of Alice's Playhouse; A Survivor's Story" about the Baker Playhouse. There will also be a reading by storytelling artists from the Houston Grand Opera.
Admission to all events is free. Heritage Family Day is made possible by a generous grant from the John P. McGovern Foundation. The Heritage Society is funded in part by a grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance and is co-sponsored by the Houston Public Library, Bright Sky Press and Texas Book Festival.
