Want a summer reading program event that will draw a large crowd? My “Imagine Your Story!” show will do the trick!

My 45-minute show is a blend of magic, puppetry, comedy, and audience participation, and it celebrates the fun of reading and visiting your library all summer long. It’s like a goofy, wildly-entertaining 45-minute commercial for your library.

The cost for a single show is $395 plus travel, but

…if you find a partner library to share the date, you each get the discounted two-show price —$345 per show with no additional travel charge, or…

…if you find two partner libraries to share the date, you each get the discounted three-show price —$330 per show with no additional travel charge plus a bonus 10-minute magic workshop after each show! In the magic workshop, I teach the children two simple magic tricks that they can do with things from around the house; tricks that I learned from library books!

You can e-mail other librarians in your system, let them know the dates you’re considering and, with this much lead time, I think you’ll have no trouble finding a partner or two. Your partner library(ies) get the same discounted, all-inclusive price that you get.

If you like, I could send you an invoice now at the single show price and, if you later find a partner library, I can send a revised invoice at the lower price. Or, if you like, I can hold the entire day for you while you search for a partner library. Please let me know which option you’d prefer.

Thanks, and I hope to see you at your library in the coming summer!
