America is Changing
Ammi Phillips Must Change With Her
Set in 1848, Seven Cousins for a Horse finds Ammi Phillips, the most prolific folk artist in American history, at a low point. He has suffered a personal tragedy, his once-thriving career is fading, and even his beloved horse is on her last legs. His cousins invite him back to his hometown of Colebrook, CT, offering a sturdy horse in exchange for seven portraits of the family. But, just like America, change is afoot with his relatives. Abolition. Universal Suffrage. The future is on the line. As Ammi captures their likenesses, can he paint a new path for himself?
Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
