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 http://www.dulcimerguy.com
