Hello Rockstar Librarians!

I just rebooked Mike Anderson for
"Spooky Stories." He's an hour show.
Mike is a retired Kindergarten and 3rd
grade teacher from near Springfield, IL.
He plays music, tells stories, and he is
TOTALLY worth every penny. We have
had a lot of performers this year, and
Mike's show was the best of them all.

Mike's email is mike@dulcimerguy.com
His web site is

program!
