Story Time: Barry Wittenstein presents The Boo-Boos That Changed the World: A True Story About an Accidental Invention (Really!)
Barry Wittenstein, author of Waiting for Pumpsie, comes to Greenlight to present his new book about the surprising history behind an everyday product! 1920s cotton buyer Earle Dickson worked for Johnson & Johnson, and had a wife who often accidentally hurt herself around the house. The son of a doctor, Earle set out to create an easier way for her to bandage her injuries. Voila: Band-Aids are born! And when the Boy Scouts start testing Earle’s prototype, Band-Aids start selling like hotcakes, and the rest is boo-boo history. Join Barry for an inventive, interactive story time! Ages 3 to 8.
