Arrive at the museum early for a free tango lesson offered by our hosts Terence Clarke and Beatrice Bowles.

As a child, Beatrice Bowles hid books of fairy tales inside her schoolbooks. Later, she found that her own children adored hearing and reading stories, too. She now has recorded four collections of stories for children and is a voting member of the Grammy’s. 

Terence Clarke’s ninth book, a novel titled The Notorious Dream of Jesús Lázaro, was published last year. He is the director of publishing at Astor & Lenox.
