Another week into 2015 and I have been feilding many calls for new winter shows - but also a ton of spring and even summer shows already! I look forward to a new year of tales - but I also recieved one of the best emails! It came from the Children’s Librarian at the Kingston Library who had a very special request:
“I am thinking forward to the summer (oh boy), and this year the theme is “Every Hero Has a Story” and I was wondering if you would like to do a one-session story telling (or writing) program around the HULK?
Kingston Public Library”
As most of you know, if you come to this site, I have been busy performing the Preschool Building Stories in many of the surrounding libraries. Building Stories, though, started as a writing workshop for elementary school children from the first to fifth grade. I love the writing workshop as I get to see children’s eyes get excited when given an assignment of creative writing. They have the opportunity to create something straight from thier mind. Now, with this challenge, I get to base the ideas around my favorite comic character of all time! I will be discussing this with the Kingston Library a bit and secure a date for this super great idea! Details to follow!
Also, speaking of the Building Stories, we are entering our third week of the workshops at the Carver and Plympton Library - so if you haven’t had a chance to come to one - let this be the week! Here is this week’s schedule:
