These are some highlights ......

I continue to do a lot of school and educational programs 

with my intensive reading-writing-listening & speaking performances.....

The nationwide Big Read  has been good for me with shows all 

over the country with the books The Adventures

of Tom Sawyer, by "Mark Twain";  Treasure Island by Robert

Louis Stevenson; Call of the Wild by Jack London; and Grapes

of Wrath by John Steinbeck................


Community Concerts alsokeep me busy. 


I have been doing book signings for my  book 

The Adventures of "Riverboat John"-Glimpses of Huntsville in the 1950's which continues to amaze me with the interest.
