one-time display at the Moravian Archives

The Bethlehem Area Public Library, the Moravian Historical Society, and the Moravian Archives are pleased to invite the public to a special viewing of 11 original illustrations created for the children’s book Snow Over Bethlehem.

The beloved 1945 children’s book is a charming fictional story of a Moravian Christmas in Bethlehem in 1755, featuring numerous illustrations, painted by the author, Katherine Milhous. In the early 1950s, Milhous donated 11 of the original illustrations to the Bethlehem Area Public Library.

Moravian Historical Society board Secretary, Barbara Dietterich will be present at the event to share the history of the book and its author.

Along with an opportunity to view these original illustrations, event guests will enjoy the opportunity to purchase limited edition holiday cards featuring the illustrations and prints.
