This week I’m celebrating a couple of performances.
Singer/songwriter Emily Arrow recently performed again at Green Bean Books to promote her first album, Storytime Singalong, Vol. I. Her songs are based on picture books and they don’t want to make you want to drive off the road while listening to them.
After her event, in which a local musician joined her for a few songs as well, she did some filming in the bookstore for an upcoming video. It was nice being able to help her find books to fit her lyrics. How interesting to see behind the scenes of a music video.
I had a chance to chat with her awhile and that was nice since I could tell she was a kidlit lover. I’m glad her music adds a new way of experiencing reading!
I took a friend to watch Portland Playhouse’s production of Peter and the Starcatcher based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s novel. It was a highly enjoyable and absurdly delightful adaptation. I’m so impressed when a smallish cast and a smallish venue is able to get creative with their people and space to put on something worthy of a bigger company. I definitely want to pick up the book now.
What are you celebrating this week?
