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.  


I’m really getting excited about learning how to be a SUPER HERO for my next SRP library show!
I’ve decided to focus my super energy on the environment, and I think we need to come together to help save the wetlands all over the world With the help of my friends-the kids and families I’ve met in the past few years – I think we can make a difference for ponds, streams, rivers and lakes.

What do you say? Do you want to be a Junior Riparian Super Hero by joining me, Squirrley Shirley (otherwise known as Mz Riparian, Super Squirrel) when I visit a library in your neck of the woods his summer?

I’ll tell you more about all this in December. Okay?? Okay!

Your Riparian Super Hero Friend,

Squirrely Shirley
