Learn about history and science from Smithsonian museum curators – Estes Park Trail-Gazette

The Estes Valley Library is hosting two virtual events this spring featuring Smithsonian curators. On April 2, Paula Johnson from the National Museum of American History will share stories from Smithsonian American Table: The Foods, People, and Innovations That Feed Us. Discover how food has shaped American history and learn about the people, ingredients, events, and movements that have influenced our culinary traditions. Then on June 3, Matt Shindell from the National Air and Space Museum will delve into the history of Mars. From ancient astrologers to modern-day explorers, learn about the human fascination with the Red Planet and the ongoing efforts to uncover its secrets.

These programs are made possible by the Library Speakers Consortium (LSC), which provides access to acclaimed authors and experts through virtual visits. All events are free to attend, live-streamed, and include interactive Q&A sessions with the audience. If you’re unable to attend the live presentations, recordings are available for viewing at any time.
