March 3: On Meadowview Street by Henry Cole
Caroline lives on Meadowview Street. But where's the meadow? Where's the view? There's nothing growing in her front yard except grass. Then she spots a flower and a butterfly and a bird and Caroline realizes that with her help, maybe Meadowview Street can have a meadow after all.


March 10: Olivia by Ian Falconer

Olivia would be Eloise, if Eloise were a pig. She is good at singing 40 very loud songs and is very good at wearing people out. And scaring the living daylights out of her little brother, Ian, particularly when he copies her every move.
Perfect for ages 4 to 8.   PLUS the museum welcomes back Jamie Wyeth's Portrait of a Pig for this fun "pig tale" event!





March 17: The Tallest Leprechaun by Emily Grace Koenig

An artistic celebration of St. Patrick’s Day for young children with this unique tale about bullying....
The story starts when all of the other leprechauns, especially Owen, make fun of Milo's tallness, until one day Milo's height gets Owen out of a jam...:)


Enjoy the outdoors - 'indoors' at the Brandywine River Museum's new exhibit:
The Poetry of Nature: A Golden Age of American Landscape Painting
March 19th to June 12th

Masterworks by Thomas Cole, Asher Durand, John F. Kensett, William T. Richards, William L. Sonntag, and other giants of the Hudson River School will be on view featuring over 40 paintings created between 1818 and 1886.

The Hudson River School is considered the first art movement in the United States and one that developed a distinctly American vision of the landscape showcasing their powerful interpretations of American scenery —along the Hudson River, through the Catskill Mountains and other regions of New York, and beyond to New England and the mid-Atlantic states.

Film Screening of TRAIL MAGIC Honors Emma Gatewood...credited with saving the Appalacian Trail
Thursday, March 24, 6 to 8:30 p.m.

Emma is being honored at gardens and workshops all over the region in the coming weeks.  She proved that age is only a number - and that one senior citizen can impact history.

She survived a rattlesnake strike, two hurricanes, and a run-in with gangsters from Harlem, before finally standing atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin where she sang the first verse of “America, the Beautiful” and proclaimed, “I said I’ll do it, and I’ve done it.”

She became a hiking celebrity and appeared on TV and in the pages of Sports Illustrated. The public attention she brought to the little-known footpath was unprecedented. Her vocal criticism of the difficult and treacherous stretches led to bolstered maintenance, and very likely saved the trail from extinction.
Film Director Peter Huston will be on hand to give comments. $5 per person
