Dianne de Las Casas

The presenter for Summer Reading Workshop 2011 is Dianne de Las Casas.  She brings a wealth of knowledge and excitement to her presentations.  Dianne was born in the Philippines, and as a child lived in the Philippines, Hawaii, and Spain.  She resides in New Orleans, Louisiana.  She is an award-winning author and master storyteller who tours internationally.

She writes….
“My whole life has been a safari (Swahili word for “journey”) of stories.  The power of stories permeated and impacted my life so strongly that, at an early age, I knew I wanted to share stories with the world.  It became my life’s dream, which I am realizing today through storytelling and writing books.”

Dianne will be the presenter for the whole day and she has promised lots of hands-on activities.  We would like all libraries to send a representative to hear and experience this dynamic speaker.  Don’t wait!  Sign up now on KNOW.  If you have problems or questions about KNOW, please give Ann a call.  See you February 23.
