For the summer of 2015, I am presenting an all NEW program titled, HEROS Magic Show which will tie into the New York summer reading club theme. Just imagine one lucky patron being able to FLOAT 3 FEET IN THE AIR when they read a book about one of my favorite super hero's SUPERMAN! Once children see this happen at your library, I'll have books flying off of your shelves in record numbers. You'll see an instant increase in circulation! You'll see so many books checked out, you'll actually think you're the super hero for having me kick off your summer reading with my Heroes magic show! My goal with my summer program is to get the children in your community excited about the learning process and to help reinforce the fun of reading. You'll see an instant increase in circulation as I use popular children's books my the program. You can visit my library page on my website for more information regarding my brand new Summer Reading Show called: Heroes Magic Show: Ask about our Block Booking Discount if you team up with 1 or more libraries near you for the same day!

Latta, Tim ME PLURIBUS UNUM History,
Performing Arts- Theater
In ME PLURIBUS UNUM, we get a hilarious lecture-demonstration cum stump speech by the wanna-be Queen of the United States of America. In her negative attack campaign, she unwittingly makes the case for democracy as we know it, and shows us how lucky we are! As she argues that an absolute monarchy is so much easier than democracy (no questioning necessary, no thinking involved!) she points up the value of civic participation and involvement in our government. Her ironic criticisms of the American system cover the separation of powers, how laws are passed, taxes, and freedom of speech. At the end of her harangue, she demands a vote to end democracy in America so she can achieve her American Dream: to become queen of the greatest nation on earth. In the end she sees the paradox behind her dream. You can’t be queen of the greatest nation on earth if you take away everything that makes it great. It’s not Me pluribus unum, but E pluribus unum: out of many, one. Felicity Jones

Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
I (the author), perform a high energy, dynamic, interactive, multi-media storytelling show encompassing my book: Kokopelli & the Island of Change. This book's nautical theme (complete with sea creatures, island living, and pirates!) fits perfectly with the MAKE A SPLASH AT YOUR LIBRARY theme! My show utilizes the ancient art of storytelling mixed with vocal sound effects and character voices, projected images of my book's illustrations, a native flute musical interlude that I play personally, as well as tons of audience participation. My show is hilarious most of the time, serious at others... this dynamic really draws the children in! I have performed this identical show at over 700 elementary schools nationally, with over 500,000 children of ALL AGES having loved it to date. I have over 60,000 copies of my books in circulation, so you're getting a best-selling author storytelling as well!

Media- Video,
Performing Arts- Theater
Vincent Price was a box office draw with his horror films of the 1950's, 60's and 70's. But many never realized that Price was being groomed for more romantic leading parts in such films as The Song of Bernadette and Laura. This program focuses on the career of Vincent Price, from his early years in Hollywood to his later years working with the notorious American International Pictures and finally his rediscovery at the hands of filmmaker Tim Burton. A combination of DVD and film presentation, we also get a look at some rare pressbooks and posters used to advertise Price's pictures, this program is the ultimate testament to one of Hollywood's greatest talents.

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. About me and my work: About my presentation: (See Page 12)
