And so he did. . .And so begins “Around the World in An Afternoon”, a musical storytelling adventure that will transport your library audience to lands both near and far. Within the frame story of Jack sailing on his cabbage (based on an old story dreamed up by Pete Seeger long ago), Story Laurie takes listeners on an imaginary journey that begins in your library’s backyard. The audience will sail south to the small island nation of Haiti, to hear a traditional folk tale. Then they will set sail across the Atlantic, where they will meet characters commonly found in European and African folklore. We then continue our journey around the globe, with a stop in Asia, then the South Seas and finally back home to the United States...singing songs, telling tales, off we go!

Walks, Russell The Power of Pop Culture Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Visual Arts- Drawing
In addition to being an artist and writer, I’m a teacher with a Masters Degree in Education. I’d love to visit your library this summer and spend some time talking with your kids about the importance of reading and about how a friendship with literature can help young adults achieve their dreams. In 2006 and 2007, I was the artist responsible for the young adult side of the Collaborative Summer Library Program. During those two years, I spent some time traveling around the country giving a presentation I’ve developed based on my artwork, my love of reading, and Joseph Campbell’s philosophy about the persistence of myth and its importance in our lives. I know that all sounds a little scholarly, but the presentation itself is entertaining as well as educational – I talk about Star Wars, and about how it changed my life. I explore the connection between stories as seemingly disparate as The Lion King and the Harry Potter saga, and I talk about how those stories apply to all of us.
