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.

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.
