Library lover/author/storyteller/juggler Bob Kann, will present a fast-paced participatory program for kids of all ages. Join the fun in this big celebration of dreams of all sorts. Hear tales of dreams of buried treasure, homework machines, hippo sandwiches, kids who can fly, and much more. Experience the dreams of magicians who vanish elephants and jugglers who cascade bowling balls. Learn about the dreams of a little girl who wanted to play professional baseball, as presented in Bob’s biography Joyce Westerman: Baseball Hero. Joyce played for eight years in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League depicted in the movie A League of Their Own.
