Summer Reading

Lindsay is a highly sought-after Summer Reading Program performer, delighting library audiences with her interactive, literacy-based programs since 2009. At the end of each program, Lindsay likes to send her listeners racing to the bookshelves by letting them in on a little secret — the amazing stories she told can be found in BOOKS! Summer dates fill up fast, so book early to secure your preferred date!

 

SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2017:

Libraries Rock!

With two options to choose from this year, you can’t go wrong!

 

A MUSIC/STORY MASH UP!

Music and storytelling combine as Lindsay teams up with Amy Glick, a violinist with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, to bring to life her humorous tale of Peter, a prince who dreams of being a frog. Audience members of all ages will laugh along as Peter stops at nothing to realize his dream. This 30-minute performance will be followed by a talk-back session in which Amy and Lindsay will share more about their art forms as well as the process of combining them to create this original performance. (As always, there will be opportunities for the audience to get involved on both a vocal and kinesthetic level!)

Don’t miss the chance to make your library rock this summer with this completely unique program!

Reviews from our debut performances:

Thank you again for presenting the most entertaining story I have ever heard. The interaction with the children and adults was wonderful. . . This performance is one that can be enjoyed by all ages, from tiny tots to middle-schoolers and adults.

         — Rebecca DiFrancesco; Children’s Services Manager, Louisville Public Library 

 

 

. . . The mood was set as Amy played her violin and Lindsay met each child and family member personally with a warm smile and handshake upon entering the room. Lindsay’s expressive face, charming storytelling voice and delightful whole body movements captivated the entire audience. Amy was engaging and informative as she demonstrated pizzicato on her violin. . .  it is great to see young children enthralled by the violin.

The Bremen Town Musicians

Hear the tale of the Bremen Town Musicians like you’ve never heard it before! Part animal symphony, part acting master class. Lindsay will have audience members howling (literally!) as they learn to use their voices and bodies to embody the characters in the story. With some German language thrown in, this is sure to be a program as unforgettable as the tale itself.
