Last year Central Middle School history teacher Alan Birkemeier was one of 18 teachers selected nationwide by the National History Day project to research a fallen WW II soldier buried in Europe and then to visit his gravesite. For a year Birkemeier researched the life of Ogilville native Chester Lane; in July 2015 Birkemeier placed a piece of Indiana limestone and an American flag from Lane’s brother on Lane’s grave in France and gave a small eulogy. During this program Birkemeier will describe his research process on Lane and the impact the National History Day project has had on him as a teacher.

Description
Immerse yourself in one of the most iconic landscapes in children’s literature: the Hundred Acre Wood. Not many know that it is a real place in East Sussex, England called Ashdown Forest. Kathryn Aalto, author of The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh: A Walk Through the Forest That Inspired the Hundred Acre Wood leads a nostalgic, visually-rich journey into the place where A. A. Milne lived and set the tender adventures of Pooh and his band of friends. Learn about Milne’s extraordinary childhood in the natural world and how he and illustrator E. H. Shepard became the Lennon-McCartney of children’s literature. Discover the real places that inspired the stories as well as the rare flora and fauna of the forest. Leave with a new understanding of how the Winnie-the-Pooh books are now, more than ever, field guides for the free range child, a hymn to those days of Doing nothing — yet learning everything. Aalto is a writer, designer, historian and lecturer. For the past twenty-five years, her focus has been on places where nature and culture intersect: teaching literature of nature and place, designing gardens, and writing about the natural world. Copies of The Natural World available for purchase at the event from Viewpoint Books.
