Sterling North Museum 25th Anniversary Celebration

August 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Visit the childhood home of Sterling North, one of America’s great novelists. North, an Edgerton native who lived from 1906 to 1974, wrote classics such as “So Dear to My Heart,” “The Wolfling,” and the autobiographical “Rascal” which details North’s life raising a raccoon, the titular character. “Rascal” and “So Dear to My Heart” both were adapted to films by Walt Disney.  At this celebration of the 25th anniversary of the museum, enjoy presentations by Sheila Cohen, author of Sterling’s only biography, and early board members who will discuss the purchase and renovation of the house where Sterling North grew up. Take a tour of the house and get your picture taken with Rascal. Refreshments available. House tours are $5 for adults, $3 for students; children under 5 are free.
