Catalanotto, Peter Writing and Illustrating Children's Books Literature- Creative Writing,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists,
Visual Arts- Drawing
In my presentation, I show and explain my creative process from inspiration to finished book. I give the children clear examples of how to get ideas from combining everyday life with imagination and how to develop those ideas. I teach them the critical thinking involved in finding their best ideas—that writing and illustration involves a lot of decision making. I also draw, showing tips and techniques that inspire children to be more creative. Each program is tailored to different grade levels--all age appropriate, so every student leaves my program empowered and inspired to write and draw. Teachers love that much of my program reinforces what they're teaching, yet they also learn new approaches to teaching writing to children. I think it's important to show students what they're learning in school, I use in real life. My website has testimonials from recent visits.

LaRue, Michele Eve's Diary History,
Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Mark Twain often wrote of Eden and the first couple's explorations of Earth. What is commonplace today was mystery then--every beast, plant, and scientific certainty a wonder newly discovered. Eve is eternally questioning, her passion for learning rivaled only by her love for Adam--from her first sighting of him (It had no hips; it tapered like a carrot!) to her profound examination of their centuries-long partnership. In this witty, poignant monologue, adaptor Gayle Stahlhuth ingeniously intertwines several Twain stories and essays--setting them A long time ago, in Heaven. Past sponsors of this production include Chicago's Newberry Library, the Chicago Book Festival, and Mohonk Mountain House. SAMPLE REVIEWS: Twain's generous, teasing Eve shows all the familiarity with her husband's flaws that you'd expect in a marriage of several hundred years. Michèle LaRue, in an actor's tour de force, brings her radiantly to life. --Robin Hirsch, Artistic Director, New Works Project, NYC It was a pleasure to work with you. The program was wonderful! Your blend of humor and touching moments was perfect. --Emily Rowe, Special Events, Missouri Historical Society, St. Louis

Handy, Spook American Folk Songs for the Whole Family History,

This program is simple. Let’s make sure our kids know some of the treasures of American Folk Music. We’ll sing old favorites like “This Land is Your Land”, “If I had a Hammer”, “I’ve been Working on the Railroad”, “She’ll be coming Around the Mountain” and maybe some newer songs. If the children don’t already know a song we’ll take the time to teach them. Parents are encouraged to sit with their children and help them learn the songs. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year. Visit for more info on the artist and other programs and workshops.
