The White House: not just for grown-ups
Your chance to live in the White House as a kid has passed you by, but you can hear what it’s like for others from author Noah McCullough. He researched facts and mini-biographies for all the first children in U. S. history in his book, First Kids: The True Stories of All the Presidents’ Children (Scholastic, 2008). You can hear him talk at 2 p.m. Sunday, February 15 at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library. Book sales and a reception will follow.
Noah’s fascination with U.S. presidents happened as a result of the 2000 election. He was intrigued as a kindergartner about the electoral college, the party system, campaigning and the fact that all throughout history, presidents have shown themselves to be just ordinary people serving in an extraordinary position. Noah has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno many times as a political correspondent and history whiz kid. Viewers nationwide have been intrigued with his quick wit, knowledge, and quest to serve. He has also appeared on Oprah Winfrey, Martha Stewart, The Today Show, and many news programs. Noah was a Scholastic Kids Press reporter for the 2004 election year as well as at the 2005 inauguration. When he was 10 years old, Noah became a published author with The Essential Book of Presidential Trivia (Random House, 2006). This book consists of chronological biographies of each president along with facts and trivia. Before heading off to college, Noahhopes to write several more books. Admission is free.
