Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

I love being a storyteller, and am always pleased when I have opportunities to share personal stories, world folktales and western history narratives. As a touring performer and workshop presenter, my work has taken me all around the country. I provide workshops and entertain audiences of all ages at schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events. Most recently, I’ve been telling stories to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues.  

 

I don’t know how it happened, but I forgot to touch base with you in November to tell you the exciting news about what we are cooking up for libraries next summer. It seems the Timberland Regional Library had so much fun when we performed “Squirrely Shirley Makes Waves” in 2011 that they want us back in 2013. Isn’t that cool?
Between July 17 and July 31, our newest show, “Squirrely Shirley Digs Up a Treasure Chest of Trouble,” will appear at ten different libraries in and around the Olympia/Seattle area. As the time gets closer, I will tell you about which library and the times of each show. If you live in Washington State, I sure hope to see you in the audience, ’cause I’d love to meet you in person.

Hey – are you as excited about this holiday season as I am? I’ve decorated my tree and am asking some of my friends over for a party on December 16th. What are you doing to have fun?

Gotta go – Winston is here for my exercise session (remember, he’s my personal trainer). . .

Love, Your Friend
Shirley
