Summer Reading Kickoff @ Finney County Public Library
Jun 1 @ 10:30 am

Storyteller Priscilla Howe is back. Along with help — or hindrance — from her ridiculous hand puppets, she’ll share her favorite stories, songs and story-songs for all ages.

Priscilla has been a full-time storyteller since 1993, after five years as a storytelling librarian. She travels the world (14 countries and counting) with a head full of stories and a bag full of puppets. Priscilla makes her home in Lawrence. She’s also searching for the best restaurant pie on earth.

This free event kicks off the summer reading program at Finney County Public Library.
