Have you ever wished that you could talk to a ghost? (A friendly one, of course.) Reading about history is like talking to ghosts—finding out what people thought and how they lived. You can re-live their adventures or discover how they overcame difficult circumstances such as sexism, racism, and war.
The Kansas City Public Library isn’t haunted (as far as we know), but you can meet the past. Starting in April, Library Director Crosby Kemper III will interview re-enactors portraying famous people from the past, such as poet Langston Hughes , pilot Amelia Earhart , and President Harry S. Truman .
