Suburban Acres Library, Tulsa
Today I did the first two of four shows for the Tulsa Public libraries in conjunction with the Tulsa Performing Arts Center on the topic of Jason and the Argonauts. This is part of the Imagination series - each program promotes an upcoming event at the TPAC. I did a few of these last year on a different story and really enjoyed it.
Part of the program involves me reading to the kids from the story, so I've spent some time this past week reading different versions of Jason, to find one I wanted to read aloud from.
The photos below were taken by the librarians at the Suburban Acres Library this morning (thanks!!). My audience consisted of two second grade classes, borrowed from the school next door. The kids were fantastic and we had a great time together talking and singing about heroes. They had prepared by reading two different versions of Jason and comparing them. So we had lots of comments about how my version was different.
Two more Jason shows tomorrow!
