LITERATURE ON THE LAWN WITH KAREN RAE KRAUT
Join us for Literature on the Lawn featuring variety artist and storyteller Karen Rae Kraut. This month Kraut presents her one-woman-show, “The Call of the Open Road: Adventure, Danger, and Mystery Away from Home”. This event is scheduled to take place in front of the Riverside Public Library on Thursday, August 2, 2018.
Come enjoy music and movement with exciting stories from Zimbabwe, Japan, and Mexico. Be ready! Hairy monsters and perhaps even a second chance could be waiting around the next turn. Will the monsters be defeated? Will the children return home safely? They will if their wily animal helpers have anything to say about it!
“Riveting,..children were spellbound! Their eyes were popping out of their heads and they wriggled (appropriately) in their seats.”
--Marion Mitchell-Wilson, Inlandia Institute
“Contagious energy!” --DP, parent, Riverside Art Museum
“I was struck by the transformative power of this kind of program. Especially pronounced was the change on the look of the faces of the adults who, for a while, stepped into another world and lightened and filled their spirits.” --Karen Delshad, Fairview Library
“The kids talked about your show for days!” Jenny Wren, Hollydale Library
This event is free and open to the public. The Riverside Public Library located at 3581 Mission Inn Ave, Riverside, CA 92501.
