Bell Fire Arts Collective Presents

Legendary Chicago Storyteller Scott Whitehair

Friday-Saturday-Sunday September 15-16-17

In a rare opportunity for North Country lovers of the art of storytelling, Bell Fire Arts, in partnership with the Whallonsburg Grange and the Keene Valley Library and supported by a grant from the New York Council on the Arts, is bringing legendary Chicago storyteller Scott Whitehair to the North Country for a series of performances and workshops.

Over a three-day period Scott will use his expertise to create a custom set of performances and storytelling opportunities to provide inspiration, modeling and skill building for audiences, storytellers and would-be storytellers.

As a performer, Scott has brought his dynamic blend of vulnerability, humor and insight to venues, festivals and conferences all over the world, and has been seen/heard on NPR, PBS, WGN Radio, FOX-TV, Sirius XM, and The Risk Podcast. He is a two-time Moth Slam winner and has won numerous storytelling competitions over the years. As an instructor, Scott has led hundreds of workshop and class sessions for diverse groups of all ages, from theater camps to corporate seminars. He produces “This Much Is True,” one of the Chicago’s longest running personal narrative series, and he is the creator of Story Lab Chicago. In addition, he has served on the board of directors for the National Storytelling Network.

Workshops are limited in the number of participants and early registration is recommended.

The Bookstore Plus Presents

International Dot Day

Friday September 15th, 2023, 9 – 6

International Dot Day is a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration. It began when teacher, Terry Shay, introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on September 15, 2009.
The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark.” What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe.

Each year on International Dot Day—with the help of people just like you—the inspiration continues. What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do.

Stop by The Bookstore Plus on September 15, 2023, to “MAKE YOUR MARK” on our storefront window and sidewalk! A variety of window markers and chalk will be available to help get the creative juices flowing. Let’s show the creativity the community of Lake Placid has.

Copies of The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds are available to purchase at the store or HERE.
