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 October 15- November 10. It is a month long arts festival 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: 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 on October 9th. 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!
