Storyteller to visit M-U library

WEST MILTON — Folk tale storyteller Lindsay Bonilla is back and ready to take Milton-Union Public Library summer reading kids on an adventure! She will be at the library from 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, June 7.

To kick off the “On Your Mark. Get Set … READ!” Summer Reading Program, Bonilla will give the kids what she calls a “story experience.” Bonilla uses a unique blend of storytelling, theatre, drama and songs to immerse the audience in tales from around the world. Her stories always include hilarious characters and audience participation.

Bonilla graduated from Northwestern University, where she studied theatre, creative dramatics, storytelling and world religions. She is an avid writer and has authored poetry, picture books, skits, magazine articles and screenplays. She has published several children’s books and two films have been based off of some of her storytelling programs.

Bonilla is also an avid traveler: She has visited five different continents, and performed and taught in such places as Spain, Ghana, Haiti, Argentina, Guatemala and El Salvador. Her company World of Difference Ltd. was founded with the purpose of teaching children about different countries and their cultures.
