Children's storyteller performs Aug. 15

Storyteller Diane Postoian will present "Diaries of a Frog" for children age 4 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. 15, from 2 to 2:45 p.m. in the Jamestown library meeting hall. Registration is not necessary.

When Postoian performs a story, she turns it into a onewoman play. She dramatizes contemporary books on a child's reading level, so she can say to her audience, "If you liked this story, you can read it."

"Diaries of a Frog" is a storytelling performance that celebrates life from the ground up. She performs stories that give voice to nature, animals, and humans with passion, depth, and humor.

Former director of Looking Glass Theatre, Postoian has made children her business for 25 years, and her contributions were recognized by Rhode Island College in May with an honorary doctor of fine arts degree.

This performance is sponsored by the Rhode Island Office of Library and Information Services,
