Rounding out our stellar storytellers at Reading: A Family Affair on March 2, 2013, is Sing Books with Emily, whose mission is to share the wonderful world of singable picture books which combine the magical wonders of music, text, and illustration. Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus has been nominated for a 2010 Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) ”Wammie” in the “Cabaret Artist” category. She premiered her show “Oh, What a Beautiful Day: Sing Books with Emily, the Cabaret” in June 2011. In August of 2011, Emily returned to the Kennedy Center to perform in a Staged Reading of the new musical “Kris Kringle, the Musical” as part of the Page to Stage Festival. Sing Books with Emily is best for ages 4 – 9, and she will perform from 1:00 – 1:45 pm.


Oh Susannah, singer/songwriter/guitarist Susan McNelis, performs for hundreds of children and parents every week in the Mid-Atlantic region. Her first musical release, Twinkle & Shine, brought her to the attention of the Kennedy Center. Her next CD Sing-Song received a coveted iParenting Media Award. Her latest CD, The Cat Lady Sings, was just nominated for Best Chilren’s Album by the Washington Area Musicians Association. Oh Susannah is best for ages 2 – 6, and she will perform from 11- 11:45 am.

During the 15 minute intermission between each performance, take your child to meet Clifford the Big Red Dog, our special guest from WETA Kids, or enjoy snacks for purchase from James Lee Razorbacks Youth Sports!
