Puppeteer Priscilla Howe will return to Fort Scott for the first time in several years on July 11 for a 10 a.m. performance at the Ellis Family Fine Arts Center.
Priscilla will entertain her audience with a program based on this year’s summer reading theme, Libraries Rock!, with help from her array of puppets.
The library is sponsoring Priscilla’s performance as a part of the summer reading kids’ program. Prizes for meeting reading goals and information on summer reading will be available. The performance is free and open to the public.
“Priscilla travels the US and abroad (China, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and Belgium, to date) with a bagful of puppets and a headful of stories” according to a press release from the Fort Scott Public Library.
“Her favorite audience is the one in front of her at the moment. A full-time storyteller since 1993 and a former librarian, Priscilla lives in Lawrence, Kansas with her cat, Sir Francis Bacon. She’s also searching for the best restaurant pie on earth.”
