“Stuntology” at the Blue Hill Public Library

Blue Hill -

BLUE HILL, Maine — The Blue Hill Public Library will present Sam Bartlett, expert in “Stuntology,” in an entertaining after-school program for kids ages 8 and up at 3:30 p.m.  Thursday, Nov. 3, at the Bay School’s Emlen Hall. Sam Bartlett will be sharing his extraordinary talent for performing outrageous and fun tricks that will be sure to tickle the funny bones of even the most serious in the audience.

According to Sam’s web site, stuntology is “the art of avoiding boredom and exploring mysteries of the physical world by playing with everyday objects. It includes the study of absurd pranks and pointless techniques to amuse yourself, amaze your friends, and annoy everyone else. He has reportedly spent 25 years collecting, performing, chronicling, and illustrating stunts.

Sam has published three books, and in addition to being a stuntologist, is an artist, and a nationally recognized touring musician, playing both the mandolin and the banjo. When not traveling, Sam lives with his wife and three kids in Bloomington, Indiana. His latest book for which he did the illustrations, The Best of Stuntology (2008) is sold internationally and was featured on the BBC. It will be available for purchase at the show.

This free performance is open to the public and made possible by the Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library in cooperation with the Bay School. For more information, call 374-5515.
