Program description: The Magic of Reading blends magic, puppetry, comedy & audience participation to celebrate the wonderful world of reading and the fun of visiting the library all year long. It's like a goofy, wildly-entertaining 45-minute commercial for YOUR library. Praise for my shows: “Our patrons – kids and adults -- had such a blast! There are very few performers I will hire, due to quality of performance and budgets, but this is one of the best...worth every penny.” -Penny Meskos, Fayetteville Free Library “Loved it… one of the best… you appealed to both children and adults which is rare.” -Sara Knobel, Groton Public Library “Excellent. You easily kept the attention of 100 children and 40 adults. You are definitely a professional.” -Linda Poelma, Cuba Circulating Library
