Kallevig, Christine Discover Storigami Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Folk Arts
Storytelling and origami together as one, two arts combined, doubles the fun! Discover Storigami with the award-winning author of ten books, including NATURE FOLD-ALONG STORIES and the new picture storybook, THE SUN, THE MOON, AND THE ORIGAMI GRAMMIE. A novelist and performing artist since 1991, Christine Kallevig folds giant-sized paper as she tells stories. Each fold represents an action, setting, or character, so by the time the story is over, a surprise origami figure is magically created. Included are audience fold-along activities, original material from her books, and origami adaptations of traditional folk tales. Christine uses music, humor, and large origami puppetry to dramatize the stories, and always finishes with an easy fold-along tale so that everyone has an origami souvenir to take home.

Crocker, Keith Boris and Bela : The Kings of the B's History,
Media- Film,
Visual Arts- Other
Here is a perfect program for the Halloween season. We explore the career of classic Hollywood horror icons Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. Although Karloff and Lugosi were rivals in terms of their competing for the meatiest roles in fantasy cinema, their careers often collided for some fantastic collaboration and memorabilia cinematic moments. Be the first on line to hear about the humble beginnings of both performers and their flight to stardom as they essayed the roles they'd both become synonymous with (Lugosi for Dracula and Karloff with Frankenstein). We are going to see film clips as well as a wealth of movie memorabilia to give a fine portrait of two men so long associated with B grade pictures who turned the product they starred in to A list material. This is a must do program!
