Program description: Veteran storyteller and musician Story Laurie is looking forward to rockin’ & groovin’ with your library patrons this summer. Named ‘Best Children’s Performer’ by Hudson Valley Magazine, Story Laurie is renowned for her amazing ability to engage kids of ALL ages with her deliciously creative and fun participatory programs. For the 2018 LIBRARIES ROCK theme, Laurie invites your SRP audience to ‘Get Down, Jump Around, & Boogie with Books!’ This program combines groovin’ musical versions of classic picture books (eg. Five Little Monkeys) with lively story songs (eg. Abiyoyo) and highly original sing-along songs based on much-loved picture book characters (Blueberries for Sal & Pete the Cat) and real life heroes, such as Mama Miti (Wangari Maathai). Laurie's program always serve up a bushel full of fun while also inspiring a lifelong love for reading. Visit Laurie’s website for more details and countless testimonials by librarians and events organizers.

Notes about the fee: I love block bookings and offer generous discounts when librarians in one system/region work together to bring me to 2 or more libraries. Let's talk!
Other notes: I am always happy to work with libraries and other venues with limited budgets...especially if there's a really good pick-your own berry farm nearby. Don't be shy. Give a call. Let's make it work!
