Around the World with Karen & Nicole “Precious Friend”

In celebration of the Friends of the Riverside Library and National Friendship Day August 1, storyteller Karen Rae Kraut and puppeteer Nicole Cloeren will present “Precious Friend” stories, poems, puppets, and a song or two about friendship. Is it true that with a friend joys are doubled and sorrows cut in half? What do you think?
Karen Rae Kraut has been blending story, song, and creative movement in schools, libraries, museums, and theaters from California to East Tennessee since 1990. She has toured for the Smithsonian, and was commissioned by the McCallum Theatre to create a storyteller’s version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Karen’s CD, Cooler Water Cora and Other Stories, is the winner of an iParenting Media Award for Audio Excellence and a National Parenting Publications Honors Award.
Nicole Cloeren is the founder of Puppets a la Carte, where she uses puppets and techniques of improvisation to create a space of surprise and wonder in which we can all learn from one another. She is a resident artist at Riverside Studios, has performed with puppets at numerous indoor, outdoor, and online events around Southern California, and loves partnering with other artists.
