In 2015, I chose twenty of my favourite blog posts and compiled them into a light-hearted book called “Life Matters.” I held several book signing and reading events. The readings naturally segued into storytelling.
This is a partial list of venues:
MOST RECENT: IWK Children’s Hospital, Halifax, NS; Lockeport Elementary School, Lockeport Summer Day Camp. Each experience was downright AWESOME! Children’s events include silly songs, a funny story and a wide range of follow-up activities.
Had an exciting afternoon storytelling “ARE WE THERE YET” at the Lockeport Day Camp Program with Glenn as my mischievous helper! The leaders were young women with motivation and big ambitions for the future. Girls rock! We even sang opera. The children participated beautifully. I have a big selection of follow-up games and activities. Today, every child chose to colour. Glenn’s theory is they chose it because they got to rip a page out of a book. Thanks for having me!
LIBRARIES: Lillian Benham Library Lockeport, NS (This little library in my hometown has been more supportive than I could ever imagine.), Clark’s Harbour, NS Library, Bobcaygeon, ON Public Library, Main Branch City of Kawartha Lakes Library, Lindsay, ON,
RETIREMENT HOMES: Jackson Creek Retirement Home, Peterborough, ON; Sherbrooke Heights, Peterborough, ON; 140 William Place, Lindsay, ON; Adelaide Place, Lindsay, ON; Case Manor, Bobcaygeon, ON; the Renoir, Newmarket, ON; Cedarcroft Place, Oshawa, ON
OTHERS: Women Excelling in Business Conference, Peterborough, ON; Bobcaygeon Seniors’ Centre, First Responders’ Fundraiser, Lockeport, NS; Tuesday Morning Coffee Group, Bobcaygeon, ON; Trinity United Church Fundraiser, Bobcaygeon, ON, and The Play Café, Peterborough, ON.
I would LOOOVE to enrich your next event with laughter, all the way from snickering, to chuckling, to chortling to snorting! I am confident you will enjoy every second.
My storytelling would be a perfect fit in the dreaded spot nobody wants: immediately following lunch when many attendees are yawning or asleep. My voice will wake them up!
