CLOSING CELEBRATION: “Conversations with Anne” Thursday, May 14th • 7:00 pm
The Anne Frank Center's signature live drama performance is taken directly from Anne's Diary. Ideal for student and family audiences, the program provides a uniquely personal glimpse into Anne's time in hiding. Questions and answers with "Anne" follow the performance.

A traveling exhibit brought to us by a generous gift from Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes to the Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation. 

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.

Please register online or by phone at Ext. 3. Suitable for adults and attentive listeners of all ages.
