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.  


Hi Friends, It’s June 1st and vacation time!
I am going with that story-teller-person-lady-Glenda Bonin to California to see a friend graduate and then hopefully to meet with some people who may want to sponsor us for our 2012-2013 tour, “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry”. I am so excited about the future!
One really nice part is that I have my good friend, Sam Dragonetti, tree-sitting for me to water my plants, bring in the mail and all that stuff you need to do at home. It is the first time he has stayed in a tree and we both hope it works.
Your Friend Squirrely Shirley
