December Luncheon - The Rabbit Hole Explor-a-Storium

Speaker: Pete Cowdin – The Rabbit Hole Explor-a-Storium

*Kansas City Jazz Orchestra’s Rod Fleeman will be providing holiday music during this months luncheon!

Pete Cowdin is one of the co-founders and director of the upcoming Rabbit Hole and Explor-a-Storium. The Rabbit Hole recently purchased a 165,000-square-foot warehouse at 919 E. 14th Ave. in North Kansas City with the intention of transforming it into a national museum that celebrates children's literature, opening in November 2019.

The Explor-a-Storium plans include galleries that bring storybooks to life, a printing press, theater and bookstore. Ever-changing exhibits will be fabricated by local artists and inspired by beloved books. Imagine wandering through Max's house from "Where the Wild Things Are."
