Come with me to the realm of black art - the art of printing!

Author reading for children: "Johannes Gutenberg and the disappeared letters"

On 28.03.2019 there will be an extra event for children in the run-up to our Jour Fixe der Freunde Gutenbergs around the children's book "Johannes Gutenberg and the disappeared letters". Before the evening appointment the little guests can learn everything about the orphan boy Martin, who starts an apprenticeship in Johannes Gutenberg's printing workshop. But suddenly thefts occur in the workshop and Martin sets off to search for the perpetrators. Can the neighboring girl Klara help him? Or is she in cahoots with the thieves?

After a short reading you can prove your knowledge in a quiz. In addition, all big and small artists can get creative and print themselves in the mobile printing workshop of the Gutenberg Museum's print shop.

Date: March 28, 2019
