Storyteller (and Wilmette resident) Nili Yelin—a.k.a., “the Storybook Mom”—continues to bring her monthly performance series at the Bookmarket at Hanger One in Glen Town Center, 2651 Navy Blvd. in Glenview, from 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. on the first Thursday each month. After sounding her battle cry, “Let storytime begin!” Nili offers what she calls “sitdown stand-up” to entertain kids and their parents. All ages are welcome and the event is free.
Upcoming performances include:
March 1—"It's Easy Being Green"
April 5—“Springing into Spring!"
May 3—"We love Mommies!"
June 7—"Summertime, Summertime!"
Nili, a Northwestern graduate and former Saturday Night Live performer, hosts the Children's Stage at the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Book Fair and recently appeared at the Field Museum's Crown Family Play Lab for a series of storytelling events. She also narrates the Field Museum's children's podcasts.
