Rebecca Sheir presents
The Great Ball Game

Author Rebecca Sheir and composer Eric Shimelonis will present The Great Ball Game live on stage. With a special reading, a musical Q&A, and a meet-and-greet book signing, this event will be a memorable story time for the whole family. The Great Ball Game: How Bat Settles the Rivalry between the Animals and the Birds, a classic folktale originating from the Cherokee, Creek, Ojibway, and Menominee people of North America, is adapted for a contemporary audience by Rebecca Sheir, host of the award-winning Circle Round podcast, and accompanied by the vibrant illustrations of Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley, an Ojibwe Woodland artist. A dispute between the animals and the birds over who is best leads to a ball game challenge. When the game is disrupted by the arrival of a tiny creature named Bat, who doesn't seem to fit on either team, all the participants learn the value of diversity and celebrating those who seem "different." The accompanying activities and prompts encourage children to develop their own storytelling skills.
