Join us for an Interactive Storytelling Adventure and Make Your Own Magical Pop-Up Book with “Miss Understood”
  • Free to JCC Members

Join Emmy award-winner, Jill Ross Nadler, for a fun-filled, storytelling adventure. Jill is the co-founder of Page Turner Adventures, a touring theater company that combines circus and storytelling. She performs at theaters, schools, and libraries around the world, inspiring kids to collect, tell, and write stories.

Everyone will enjoy Such a Library! In this modern-day twist on an old Yiddish Folktale, Stevie craves quiet until he meets Miss Understood, a magical librarian whose books come to life and wreak havoc.

Repetition, action verbs, and onomatopoeia make this a fun read-aloud.”
