The joy a child finds in making their own time capsule, filled with everyday objects, comes alive in this inviting book from the MacArthur “genius grant” recipient and award-winning author of Radioactive.

A set of dice. A grandmother’s ring. The key to an old house. A child gathers keepsakes from everyday life, seals them in a jar, and buries them underground. A gift from the present day…to people of the future…that tells a story about the past. A time capsule.
 
The first book for children by renowned artist and writer Lauren Redniss will get readers thinking about the times they are living through and how their world will be remembered in ages to come. It will also spark creativity, inviting young people to envision the future and to make their own time capsules.

A section at the end include tips on making your own time capsule and facts about different kinds of time capsules in history.

Lauren Redniss is an author, an artist, and a recipient of a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant.” Her previous books for adults include Radioactive, a finalist for the National Book Award, and Thunder & Lightning, winner of the PEN/E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award. Her most recent book is Oak Flat, which the New York Times called “astonishing” and “virtuosic.” Time Capsule is her first book for children.
