Mayflower Mouse



400th Anniversary of the First Thanksgiving!

Local award-winning author and educator, Marian "Hannah" Carlson will be at Dennis Public Library.

Saturday, November 6th


Enjoy the true tale of the Pilgrims' adventures in 1620-1621 based on Governor William Bradford's Journal and told by the famous Mayflower Mouse.

Meet some of the characters from the story in costume, examine primary documents, listen to colonial music, and read aloud from Carlson's book, "The Adventures of Plimoth Plantation As Told by the Mayflower Mouse."

This program delights young and old with a fanciful, yet full-of-facts account of the Mayflower journey, the settlement of Plymouth, and the first Thanksgiving.
