A storytelling, balloon-sculpting, magic-making speech and communications teacher performing in Literacy Park? Yes! Jay Frasier makes his Newport Public Library debut this Wednesday, July 24 at 1:00 p.m. as young readers continue to Dig In To Reading. He's been making magic, telling tales and turning balloons into interesting shapes for a decade while keeping his day job as an instructor at Lane Community College.
A recipient of the "Dom Deluise Comedy Magic Scholarship," Genii magazine considers Jay one of the top children's performers in the country.
Using sleight-of-hand, physical comedy, and audience participation to create a magical and entertaining performance, Jay makes certain that children and adults experience the impossible made possible, reinforcing their senses of wonder and engaging their imaginations.
Join us for this free summer reading event made possible by Ready-to-Read grants from the Oregon State Legislature, support from community members Jeannette Hofer, Janice and Ross Neigebauer and Umpqua Bank and lodging from La Quinta Inn and Suites.
