I love performing in libraries! Nestled in the books, at the core of a community, I tell my listeners; ‘Stories are in the air here! Reach up with your hand and a little imagination. You’ll catch them!’ Serving on the board of the Desmond /Fish Library in Garrison, I understand how quality events draw people to the library.  


Ask to have a program tailored to your theme or interest. I'll create a lively summer reading program. I have more Hudson River lore to tell than anyone.  Scroll down for the story of how my hometown library saved me when I was a teenager.
