Jones, Thomas The Maltese Falcon Revisited Literature- Other,
Media- Film,
Science
This program was created as part of the Big Read program. I have created a "next chapter" in the story of the Maltese Falcon and take on the role of a modern day forensic scientist who is visited by a relative of one of the characters from The Maltese Falcon. I use stills from the 1941 film as police photos, and I have created evidence that fits with the story. The audience and I explore the original story through the lens of forensic science and come to some intriguing conclusions about the person who visited me. This program is very popular with adults, who tend to really get into it.

Edgecomb, Diane Insect Comedy Nature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Insect Comedy takes a delightful look at our Six-legged friends. In Princess Firefly entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug I will love?” Kate's Acorn, one of Diane's original stories, teaches about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. And in another backyard tale we learn about when to keep or let insects go. Diane's hilarious interpretations of Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat, Old King Lampyradie Beetle keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the world of insects. "From the Academy's point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!" Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA
