Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

As a performer I have reinvented myself several times (Whispers the Clown, Magician, Puppeteer, Mother Goose, Granny Magic and Storyteller Glenda Bonin). These new directions have taken place in response to a need to pivot and redirect my talent, energy, and interests to reach new audiences and grow. I am currently developing a new body of work relating to the Westward Movement and Arizona History. This is not to say that I am no longer available to the audiences I have served in the past. This is simply a new direction and focus of my energy as I continue to grow as a performer and storyteller.  


Wow! Is it really the New Year already? I’ve been waiting for this year to start because this means that the 2014 Library Summer Program, FIZZ, BOOM, READ! is just a few months away.

Time for me to polish up my “Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science” show and get ready to share what I’ve learned about science.
Science is a big subject, so I’ve been looking at experiments I can safely do under the watchful eye of an adult. This means, you can probably do them, too!

Today, I want to share “READ!(More…)”, my second reading list of science books I think you might like to check out from your local library. If you really like one of these books, you might want to buy your very own copy from a bookstore. For this FREE Read! (More…) book list PDF, just click here.
