Storyteller Jonathan Kruk entertains at Andes Library


Andes — The Andes Library welcomes professional storyteller and enchanter extraordinaire, Jonathan Kruk for a free concert for kids of all ages on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 6 p.m.
Born in El Paso, Texas, but raised in Westchester County, storyteller Jonathan Kruk grew up on tall tales and daydreams. He began telling tales to calm his rambunctious kid brother at bedtime. Later, friends got him a gig entertaining at Abingdon Square Park in the middle of New York City. When kids abandoned the monkey bars, cyclone sprinkler and ice cream truck to listen to Jonathan, he found his career calling. Now, Jonathan considers it a blessing to give almost 300 performances and workshops each year.
Recently, Jonathan was selected “Best Storyteller in the Hudson Valley” by Hudson Valley Magazine. The New York Times, noting his far ranging work described him as “Westchester’s Intrepid Storyteller.” Kids love his CDs, “The Rainbow Dragon” and Barkface & Rootnose.” Plus, his Berger Platters/Historic Hudson Valley produced recording of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (with musical effects by Matt Noble), which earned a National Association of Parenting Publication Honors Award.
The Andes Public Library is located at 242 Main Street (Rte. 28) in Andes. For more info about this free concert, please call the library at 845 676-3333.
