I received an email today from Scholastic promoting a virtual field trip with best-selling author David Baldacci sponsored by The 39 Clues Reading Club. I am intrigued by this tour for several reasons:
1) David Baldacci is a great writer and I have had the opportunity to hear him speak and he is perfect for this
2) I have created a promotion for the series and this might be a great way to help add to this promotion by showing how the series links to history
3) This will be a great resource for anyone interested in learning about secrets from the past
This virtual tour titled DECODING HISTORY is taking readers, fans and viewers on a tour of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, where they will hear from top museum curators, get behind the scenes access, and learn about America’s history in a whole new light.
The tour takes place on March 5 at 1 pm est 10 am pst. http://decodinghistory.scholastic.com/
