Kantorovitz, Sylvie Books, Potatoes, and Funny Faces Literature- Authors,

Hello, I am an author and illustrator of over 20 children's books. This is how my visits usually evolve: I read from one of my books, show how to turn potato shapes into funny faces, draw a scene suggested by audience and, if time allows, read a bit more. I welcome all questions and comments. This is a very interactive session. It is suitable for all ages but especially good for the very young ones and their parents. Also good for older kids interested in illustration. I would happily consider a session for older kids with emphasis on drawing. I would show some illustrators' simple techniques.

Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.
