We are very fortunate to have Sharon Peck coming in. Sharon will be doing a lecture/workshop called "Tabletop Puppetry With Children's Literature".Sharon teaches children's literature and related courses at SUNY Geneseo, in Rochester, New York and has been deeply involved in puppets, believing that puppetry touches the imagination of children as no other venue can. She is the former regional director of the Northeastern Region of Puppeteers of America.

We will also have a brief business meeting and lots of discussion about the upcoming Puppeteers Potlatch event, coming up in November.
