Educators will have the opportunity to hear from our long time friend and supporter Richard Boyce.
Richard and his brothers grew up in Plainfield, New Jersey. In 1968, the brothers signed a record deal with Warner Brothers Records. One month later both Richard and his younger brother Frankie were drafted. During his presentation he will share his story of music and family during the Vietnam War.
After the talk our Museum Educator Keri A. Giannotti will present lessons using the lyrics of Frankie Boyce and his letters home. Our Curator Greg Waters will discuss the objects in the current exhibit that help tell Frankie’s story.
3 Hours of Professional Development Credits will be awarded.
The cost for this workshop is $25.
