Little Scribe

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Youth Program Room

Where did our beloved ABCs come from and how did they come to be? Join us for an interactive tale about two friends, a jealous brother, and the creation of the alphabet. We'll explore how the writing of ancient Mesopotamia changed into the script used by ancient Assyrians and learn how to write numbers in the ancient language.

Registration is required. Limit 10 participants.
