Epstein is one of 11 fifth- and sixth-grade students selected to participate in this year's program.

The Young Docents' responsibilities include giving tours of Thurber House, decorating the house for Halloween and Christmas and performing Thurber's works at the Columbus Arts Festival. Before being officially accepted into the program, Young Docents attend four Saturday training sessions to learn about James Thurber, his family and his works, as well as the history of Thurber House and its ghost stories.
