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.

Kuhn, Lindsay Dig In Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
Smoke Ridge Farm is an organic sustainable farm in upstate NY. Using a modified square foot garden method, we plant enough food to feed 40 families on just 5 acres. During the program, the presenter will help patrons plant their own square foot garden, using heirloom seeds. An alternative will be to use a box demo garden to inspire patrons of all ages to be aware of where their food comes from and to eat local. I will also talk about farming green (using real live horse power), heirloom seeds and seed saving, do it yourself vertical hydroponics, environmental conservation using butterflies, and horse rescue and rehabilitation. This program is suitable for the 2014 summer reading program.

Bertles, John Recycling Remix Music,
Nature- Environment,
Science
A 3+ performer remix of our famous Bash the Trash performance, plus hands-on instrument building, followed by an audience-participatory culminating event. We start with a version of our show that gives the basics of instrument building, as well as driving home the environmental message of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Participants then build a variety of instruments using recycled/reused materials that they bring in themselves, and/or materials provided by Bash the Trash. The event culminates in a joyous music-making event in which the audience members join the band. Depending on your physical space and appropriateness, this final event can take the form of a stage performance, a parade, or something completely different.
