Storyteller performs at library

Storyteller Katie Latimer presents "Pinky the Guinea Pig, Bismark the Buffalo, and Other Stories of Underwear and Fried Chicken," for children age four and up and their families as part of the summer reading program, "Paws, Claws, Scales and Tales."

This free program will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 8, from 7

to 7:45 p.m. in the Jamestown library's meeting hall. Registration is not necessary.

Ablend of funny and furry animal tales - the trickster guinea pig from the Andes, a grumpy buffalo from the Sahara, and one slick-talking, sunglass-wearing, singing zebra - these fast-paced, dynamic, and interactive stories are guaranteed to entertain the whole family.

From Hope Valley, Latimer has been telling stories professionally since she was 13 years old. Winner of the 1998 National Youth Storytelling Olympics, she has worked extensively in New England, at libraries, schools, and festivals, and across the U.S., including at the 1999 International Reading Conference in San Diego, and at the National Storytelling Festival in Tennessee.

This performance is sponsored by the Rhode Island Office of Library and Information Services, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, McDonald's Restaurants of Rhode Island, and the Friends of Jamestown Library.
