Bringing the Victorian era to life, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum hosted a Valentine’s Day celebration and tea on Saturday afternoon. Thirty-four girls, aged from 6 to 12, enjoyed Victorian stories, taffy pulling, crafts, and a full tea service.  “We try to show them what Victorian kids would have been doing,” said Susan Laser, museum educator.

The museum invited Joan and Mack Swift, both teachers, to tell stories with which Victorian children would have been familiar. The husband and wife team called “Tales in Tandem” tell the stories together, both playing different parts and voices. Mack Smith said, “We like to think it makes us different.”
