Be careful, Miss Laurie will draw you right into her story, and you might get lost in the pages!
Miss Lynn loves to share a good story through her songs, and to hear kids’ stories in return when they talk and sing together. The songs on her CD, Something New, include stories of a homemade "garbage" band (Make Something New), a sandy return from beach vacation (Itty Bitty Nitty Gritty), the perils of cooking without proper time and care (The Tale of the Hasty Baker), and the international journey to build one family (Once Upon a Time). Something New and her first CD, Outside the Lines (2008), have been featured on the radio in Boston, St. Louis, and central Ohio.
Emagene Reagan is a retired school librarian who tells stories from folk and fairy tales and nursery rhymes, to popular storybooks and original stories you might like to tell to others.
One World Circus Drawing on cross cultural traditions of community carnivals and celebrations, One World Circus engages audiences in everything from giggles to a potential walk across the tight rope.
A storyteller who has traveled the globe over, Georgi brings together songs, stories and movement for audiences of all ages.
