“More turnips, Duck?”
Want to know what New York City children’s librarians do when they get together for big meetings?
They reenact The Dog House by Jan Thomas as readers theater, of course. I’m the house! No lines, just the way I like it. Honestly, I should have held out to play the turnips, but how could I pass up the titular role? These photo shots are a bit foggy but they still convey the ambiance of the scene.
Thanks to John Peters for the pics!
