Pelham, Ruth Meet the Artist! workshops and programs Literature- Authors,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** When children want to know if being an artist is a 'real' way to earn a living, or what it feels like to perform in front of hundreds of people, or what singing songs has to do with making a difference in the world, Ruth Pelham’s responses always serve as an inspiration for children. During this song-filled workshop, Ruth draws from her work as a songwriter, performer, recording artist, public speaker, educator, community organizer, and arts manager and conveys the message that the job of being an artist requires being good at one’s art form as well as in all of the skills that we learn in school--writing, reading, math, communicating, negotiating, problem-solving, and many more. This workshop can be geared to topics such as career development, the arts, writing skills, music and performance, making life choices, and others.

"Were They Equal?" is a delightful story from Africa, about Tortoise, Elephant, Hippo, & You! Arnold Perey, anthropologist, in this illustrated children's book, has retold the story for children today, and illustrated it with lively pictures. He is joined by flutist Barbara Allen, and actor Anne Fielding in the telling of the story. You'll hear about Tortoise, who is small. The big animals, Elephant and Hippo, feel important because they think they are better than Tortoise. But Tortoise plays an amazing trick on them which helps them see the truth: "We are different, but our feelings inside are the same. I deserve the same respect that you do."
