August TBR

I’m going to be on a hiatus for about six months or so, as I really just need to focus on my job and my health right now. So instead of posting my thoughts on museums visited or books and articles read, I will occasionally post a list of places I want to visit and items to read later. (If you have any recommendations, leave a comment!)

Number one upcoming place to visit:

National Book Festival on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center!

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
