Friday residency for K & 1 grades at Balliet Elementary School. Funded by the school and Ernst Financial, East Longmeadow; to be followed by a Massachusetts Cultural Council STARS Residency! I use the performing arts to engage children in literacy activities. We converse with puppets, listen and retell diverse world folktales, dance, rhyme, sing and laugh till beans come out of our noses. Just ask Fifi, the bubblegum pink French poodle. Ooh la la!

Feb 7 Holyoke Public Library 3:30 – 5 pm Love Poems. I read some–and you can share one or more of your favorite love poems–love in all its guises are welcome!
