Here's an American Girl tea party with a twist! Dress up, bring your dolls and enjoy an 1812 afternoon tea at the USS Constitution Museum on Sunday, October 7. You'll get to meet author Kathleen Ernst, who has created the newest American Girl series about Caroline Abbott, an independent and adventurous nine-year-old girl whose story is set during the War of 1812. In the story, Caroline learns to face her most challenging moments using her heart as her compass. Going above and beyond to help those around her, Caroline gives of herself without expecting anything in return—becoming the kind of real everyday hero that any girl can be. This event is author Kathleen Ernst's first Boston-area appearance, and the illustrated program will give attendees a special behind-the-scenes glimpse of Caroline's world and how she developed the character. The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session and the opportunity to meet the author, get your books personalized, and take photos. And, of course, there will be a proper tea -- featuring lemonade, tea, and a choice of desserts. There will also be craft activities and a door prize, and, after the event, you can visit the USS Constitution Museum and take a tour of USS Constitution, a ship that fought in the War of 1812. Sun., Oct. 7, 2 p.m. $25 per person. Pre-registraton is required; space is limited. USS Constitution Museum , Building 22, Charlestown Navy Yard, Boston.
