Kids Euro Festival!!
I just got word that one of my stories, "Breck and the Dust Bunnies" is going to be at the Kids Euro Festival in Washington, D.C. The festival runs from . It is a month long starring the most talented European children's entertainers in more than 100 FREE performances all around the city. Mimes, storytellers, a virtual orchestra, bubble-blowers, and puppeteers are just a few of the exciting acts scheduled to appear during almost four weeks of wonderful artistic adventures. Designed for children ages 6-12, the festival will be one of the largest — if not the largest — and most diverse in the country, offered through the cooperation of 27 EU embassies and more than a dozen major cultural institutions.
The festival's website is: www.kidseurofestival.org My featured story, author bio, and picture will be on their webpage shortly. I also got an email that said my name and the title of my story will also appear in a pamphlet in the Washington Post . My story is called, "Breck and the Dust Bunnies". It is a retelling of the Irish folktale, "Paddy Corcoran's Wife" by: William Caleton.
I am very excited that my story will be read aloud and will represent Ireland at the festival. Keep checking the festival's website for my story, picture and bio!
