An Evening at 221B Baker Street features the telling of “The Adventure of the Speckled Band,” by Rachel and Rebecca Oshlag of StoriesGalorious.

Their performance enlivens the tale of a damsel in distress, cunning villain, stalwart companion, and hero of reason and action. Audience members unfamiliar with the plot will be engrossed by the story while admirers of Sherlock stories will be enthralled by the telling of one Holmes’ most rousing adventures. Rachel and Rebecca provide an introduction to the story, and they entertain questions and comments afterwards. Created for the 2015 NYS Summer Reading Program, Every Hero Has a Story and year-round.

Handy, Spook The Songs of Peter Paul and Mary History,

There's a great picture of the Beatles back stage at the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 staring in awe at Peter Paul and Mary. The Beatles knew they were in the company of incredible and important musicians. This trio did more to make American folk music accessible to the masses than anyone else. People all over the world sang along to "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Blowin in the Wind." And audience members can't help but sing along with Spook as he leads them through this heart-opening, educational, and voice-raising program! (Occasionally, Spook is joined by Paul Prestopino who toured with PPM for 15 years as a back up musician.) An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

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