Lois Miner Huey is a historical archaeologist who uses her passion and knowledge about the past to write captivating nonfiction children’s books focused on uncovering the past.  Her recent books include;

  • Forgotten Bones, Uncovering a Slave Cemetery (one in Albany and two elsewhere)
  • Floodwaters and Flames, The 1913 Disaster in Dayton Ohio (and in the Albany area, too)
  • ICK! YUCK! EEW!: Our Gross American History

Lois explains the theme of her talk: “Children love to read books about exciting topics such as how early America was a third world country, a forensic study that tells us about slavery in the north, and people’s stories about dealing with a disaster like flood and fire. I will talk about the research needed for these topics and others that I present in my books.”

Registration is due by February 26th.  More details and the mail in registration form march 9 2016flyer
