P.T. Barnum’s Weird and Wacky Big Top June 26

At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, the HFK Network (History For Kids) will present “P.T. Barnum’s Weird & Wacky Big Top” at the Princeton Public Library.

Terry Lynch, as Barnum, will tell how P.T. Barnum took his traveling museum of oddities and turned it into the show loved by generations: The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.

HFK Presents offers programs, and workshops for school districts, museums, historical societies, and corporations, as well as keynote addresses for organizations.  Terry has spoken to groups of all ages using his years of theatrical and improvisational training to create unique, interactive presentations that are both informative and motivational.

Terry’s wife Laura, a certified educator and member of Who’s Who in American Education and Who’s Who Among Young American Professionals, researches and co-writes the programs as well as develops in-services and workshops.

Most recently, Terry and Laura wrote Mistakes Happen: An Historical Guide to Overcoming Adversity, and Terry has been an occasional contributor on the “WGN-TV Morning Show”.
