Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 6 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  


It seems like it was just a few weeks ago when I finished up the 2013 Library Summer Reading Program and started to think about my 2014 show,“Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science.”

If you go back in this journal to September 2013 and check the entries through to January 2014, you will be able to find four really cool scientific experiments I plan to include in this summer’s show. To help you find other spiffy science stuff, I also made two different lists of science books I think you might want to look for at your library or bookstore. Each experiment and book list is free and easy to print out for you to use.
Every time I try a new scientific experiment, I can hardly wait to do more. Science is great fun and it can be really, really exciting!

The storytelling person-lady, Glenda Bonin, and I have started to book this new summer show, and we still have a few dates open. Tell your librarian you want to see “Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science!” at your local library this year, okay? OKAY!

Your friend,

Squirrely Shirley
