Dear Donna;

We thank you for your wonderful contribution to our first Storytelling Festival here in Carteret County. Everyone at all three libraries has heard from parents and children alike how much they enjoyed it, and (since complements deserve to be passed along) you were at the top of the list of favorite perlormers. We could not have chosen a better person to kick off the program. To your credit, attendance doubled at the next few sessions, due in part to your audience spreading the word, Our Anansi books have been checking out all summer and I suspect local grocery stores may be selling out of biscuit ingredients.

We are very excited to repeat the festival next summer and would appreciate any suggestions or feedback from our participants this year as to how to make it alI run as smoothly as possible. lf you find the opportunity to drop us a note of your impressions-- space in the room, age of the listeners. sound equipment, time allotted, whatever improvements you would make to optimize the experience, we would appreciate hearing from you.

Yours Truly,

Patricia Deshinsky
