Riders on the Orphan Train

When: Sun., Feb. 16, 3 p.m. 2014

A free, one-hour multi-media program at 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 16, combines live music by Phillip Lancaster and Alison Moore, a video montage with archival photographs and interviews with survivors, and a dramatic reading of Moore's 2012 novel Riders on the Orphan Train, set in the period between 1854 and 1929 when more than 250,000 orphans and unwanted children from New York City were given away at train stations across America. The program is for all ages. Relatives of orphan-train survivors are especially encouraged to attend.
