Better Than a Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, or Milli Vanilli Concert!
No lip-synching! No body double! No beard! This is the REAL Tomie dePaola in 1999 in front of 500 children and adults at the Dana Center on the campus of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Tomie interacts with the audience, talks about childhood experiences, reads TOM and STREGA NONA, gives an art lesson, shows how he draws "Strega Nona," gives instructions on how to do a GENUINE Italian kiss... all in 65 minutes.
"Tomie Live in Concert" is available in VHS videotape and DVD from Morgan Hill Bookstore in New London, New Hampshire. 603-526-5850
