Summer Reading Finale with Spoonman! (Zoom and Youtube)

August 10 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)

Celebrate this year’s Summer Reading Club with a Finale performance more fun than a drawer full of spoons! Jim Cruise, aka “The Spoon Man,” has been entertaining families for over 30 years by playing fun and engaging music on a common kitchen utensil (he even made it to the 2nd round on America’s Got Talent). Join us for a fun Finale concert that families can sing and play along to right from their own kitchen.

This program can also be viewed on TADL’s Youtube Channel (20 second delay will prevent audience interaction and won’t allow us to see your name for attendee-only prizes).
