Yep. Here’s another presenter from the BOCES Arts in Education Showcase 2011. It’s Robin Bady, professional storyteller, actress, musician, playwright, and director. Robin entered the gymnasium with a flurry of activity and soon had our “aisle” in a hub of laughter and excitement. Robin’s booth was next to mine where I was promoting my books. You can see them at my website at www.annrichduncan.com.
Whether it’s folk and fairy tales of the world, or literary genres (including works of Carl Sandburg), or thematic tales (like ghost stories, time travel or holiday stories), Robin reportedly gives her all. With guitar and songs, movement and madcap characterizations, she brings her stories to joyful life. Don’t believe me? How about ten-year-old Jamal Williams who saw her at the Queens Library Family Day in Jamaica, NY, who said, “You really are a good storyteller. When are you coming back?”
Showcase 2011 was coordinated by the New York State BOCES Arts in Education Program and included 76 authors, performers, puppeteers, dancers, and other out-of-the-box creative educators. It was a fun event for a writer like me. Met good people. Ate good food. Had a chance to show off my books: The SEED (a chilling novel of suspense focussing on a plot to control our food supply; top-ten finalist with New Century Writers Awards); and the first three in the ongoing historical adventure series featuring treasure hunter Johnny Vic and his magical metal detector.
