We Will Be Featuring GuestStorytellers…
Godfrey Coppinger

Godfrey Coppinger is a local writer, illustrator, storyteller, and folksinger. Her latest book, Cowboy Girls, is a tale of two rambunctious sisters who let their imaginations run wild. Godfrey has worked with children all of her life, as a teacher and as a performer, and she knows that, more often than not, children are more like a whole herd of buffalo!

Terrance Mc Arthur

He was born in Los Angeles, but grew up in Bakersfield. After coming to Fresno State in 1972, he was introduced to his first wife, a girl from Sanger, on a blind date. He’s been a puppeteer, magician, playwright, fibre artist and a librarian with the Fresno County Public Library since 2003. Currently, he writes a column called The Great Food Search. It is part restaurant review and part scavenger hunt. Sometimes, it’s variations on a theme–comparing donut shops, taco trucks, Chinese restaurants. Other times, he finds a restaurant that he really likes and can write 600 words or more about it. He also write many informative articles for Kings River Life Magazine. His short stories have been published by Horrified Press and Untreed Reads.

Randel McGee

An internationally acclaimed storyteller, author, and teaching artist, who has received numerous media awards for his character education programs and “The Citation of Excellence in the Art of Puppetry founded by Jim Henson”. Randel’s lively characters and amazing illustrations capture the audiences’ imaginations, and touch their hearts! With his dozens of different voices, chameleon-like face and energetic body he transforms a story into a memorable life experience. He is an enthusiastic mentor and role model who motivates children and adults to explore their creativity and talents. He is a great example of the effect that one person on an empty stage can have over an audience.
