WESTPORT -Keene Valley Library will devote two evenings in July to a celebration of Rudyard Kipling and his beloved "Jungle Book" and "Just So Stories."
On Monday, July 18, at 7:30 p.m., the annual Summer Lecture Series presents Kipling Speaks by storyteller Jackson Gillman. Young and old alike will be captivated as classic Kipling is brought to life through Jackson's intimate theatrical style. Also known as the "Stand-Up Chameleon," Jackson Gillman magically transforms himself into a wide array of eccentric characters through his many talents as mime, actor, songsmith and storyteller. Admission is free.
Read Aloud: "Jungle Book" and "Just So Stories" by Rudyard Kipling is scheduled for Thursday, July 21 at the library. Readers of all ages are invited to help share the magic of Rudyard Kipling. Reading begins at 9 a.m. in the Children's Room and continues throughout the day. A reader sign-up sheet is available at the main desk in the library.
