Shelf Understanding is the Bloomington (IL) Public Library's podcast. Join librarian/host Danny Rice as we host conversations, interviews, and ideas viewed through the lens of a community.

03 – Puppetry

On this month’s edition of Shelf Understanding, our librarians are talking about puppetry with Samantha Anne Maggio who co-owns Suspended Belief Theater in Bloomington, IL, and with Michael Vetere, Associate Professor in the School of Theater and Dance at Illinois State University where he teaches creative drama and puppetry classes.

We love them! We’re scared of them! And you may not believe it, but there’s a Puppet Slam movement underway.
