Subject : Bank of Texas Film and Lecture Series: “The Journey that Saved Curious George,” with Louise Borden
Detail : The cartoon character Curious George is known and loved all over the world. But few people know the exciting history of his creators. In 1940, Hans and Margret Rey had to flee their Paris home as the German army advanced.  They began their harrowing journey on bicycles with their children’s book manuscripts among their few possessions. Louise Borden combed primary resources, including Hans Rye’s pocket diaries, to tell this dramatic true story. Louise Borden is an author of numerous children’s books and recently published a book on Raoul Wallenberg. This program is presented as part of the Bank of Texas Film and Lecture Series. Tickets are $5 for HMH members and $8 for nonmembers, and seating is limited.
