SUNY New Paltz Alumni Reunion Saturday and Sunday

I hope to see some of you during the SUNY New Paltz Reunion Events this weekend Saturday Oct 18 or Sunday, October 19, 2014.

I will be walking around campus and I will be at the luncheon and dinner on Saturday.

I have left a few copies of my children's book in the Campus Bookstore if you would like to purchase one.


Fun at Bridgehampton Library on 9/27/14

I had fun with the kids and parents who attended Saturday's "reading" at the library. I really appreciated how attentive the audience was during the 90 minute event. The parents/grandparents were pleasantly surprised at how engaged the kids were.

The kids really enjoyed touching the enlarged versions of the illustrations. It is always a pleasure when the audience sings along with me while I'm performing songs from the Companion CD, even though they've never heard the songs before.

During the Q&A period following the "reading", I enjoyed being able to provide background information about the life-cycle of the dragonfly.

Bridgehampton Library Reading Saturday Sept. 27

Please join me at 10am on Saturday at the  Hampton Library at Bridgehampton, located at 2539 Montauk Highway. Phone: 631-537-0015, Josh Perry, head of Children's Department. I will read selected chapters from my children's book: "Tales of the Rainbow Forest". I will also sing some songs based on some of the book's characters. Hope to see you there.

End of Summer 2014 updates

July and August have been busy and exciting and productive.  I have been meeting new people at my readings and performances.

The highlight of July was my afternoon at the Woodstock Library Fair on July 19, 2014.  It was fun for me to meet new people in Woodstock who like my book and found my music entertaining. Adults and children danced to the music from the book's companion children's album that I played on an old fashioned CD player.

The August highlight was my 2 day performance at the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice where I sang in the festival's choir and spent time at the Railroad Museum reading and performing selected chapters from my print and audio book Tales of the Rainbow Forest.

The week following the Festival of the Voice I traveled to East Hampton, NY and spent an enjoyable half hour with Judith Sleed, host of the local Long Island LTV program "The Play is The Thing".

Upon my return from Long Island I performed at Olana State Park in Hudson, NY for the second time where my entire audience consisted of adults who enjoyed my book and music and requested that I come to Connecticut in the fall for a performance/reading.

My current focus is working with a local award winning playwright on a script for a play based on Tales of the Rainbow Forest.  My goal is that the play will be performed in schools throughout the country and will be ready for production by October 2014.
