NEW: In the Shadow of the Mountain

Parents Choice award-winning storyteller Lou Del Bianco portrays his grandfather Luigi Del Bianco and tells the story of his unique contribution as chief carver on our nation’s greatest memorial. Lou uses authentic photos, maps and timlines to bring Luigi’s story to life. This is a unique program about history, ancestry, perseverance and advocating for human rights. Students will also learn that history doesn’t always tell you the whole story and that it’s up to the individual to do the work and find out the truth about what really happened. Connects perfectly to Social Studies curriculum and primary source research. Lou Del Bianco; Grades K-8; $750/$1200

I Am Alive! A Poetry Experience

This program introduces students to the worlds of poetry, discusses the basic tools a poet needs (a brain, an imagination, precision with words, etc.) and then invites students and teachers to go back to the classroom and "leave their finger-prints on the world" by writing poems. Known for his energetic, engaging and productive Poetry Residencies in New Jersey for the last nineteen years, BJ Ward has designed this program for children with references that may range from Dr. Seuss to Gandhi and Shakespeare to the Three Stooges. Students will laugh, learn, scream and not forget this experience any time soon. BJ Ward; Grades 3-5; $700/$1000
