Spellbinding Stories!

Huge thanks to Linda Conte and Debby Gullery for sharing two spellbinding Native American tales with a group of children and adults at The Field Library.  IMG_1304

Linda Conte, Peekskill Spellbinders founder, treated us to a fascinating tale from famous  Seminole storyteller Betty Mae Tiger Jumper (Betty Mae received all kinds of honors, and was even inducted into the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame). IMG_1307

Spellbinder Debby Gullery told us the story of Shingebiss (an Ojibwe legend). What a great tale of strength and perseverance. Oh, and the singing was fun! IMG_1319Capture

After the stories, we enjoyed refreshments and a FREE book. What a wonderful way to celebrate Native American Heritage Month!

Spellbinders Native Tales

On Saturday, dozens of children showed up for “Men Who Read.” They listened to some great stories, enjoyed juice and donut holes (yum!) and picked out lots of free books for their home libraries! Many thanks to Peekskill Reads for sponsoring the event, and especially Drew Claxton for organizing the program.  Thanks also to Sally Bentley and our volunteer readers, and to all those people in the community who donated books for the program.
