The Sonoma County Library is hosting a diverse range of local talent for its 2019 Summer Reading Program. From June 1 to Aug. 10, the library is offering free activities and events to encourage a love of reading among children, teens and adults. This year’s theme is Its Showtime at Your Library and those who participate can earn a free book and win prizes for reading.
Branches across the county are participating in the program and each one has a plethora of activities and performances highlighting local talent. One children’s event in the lineup is Eliot Fintushel’s Masks & Mime, performing at the Rohnert Park-Cotati Regional Library on Wed., July 24, at 6 p.m.
Masks & Mime explores the art of body language through mime illusions, creating characters via masks and stage clowning, with audience participation. Award-winning performance artist and Sonoma County resident Eliot Fintushel combines comical fun with silent concentration to discover how to read others’ feelings in an instant.
