Share a Story - Change the World
Mylinda Butterworth has not received any gifts yet
Grandma & Myndy is a mother/daughter storytelling team. Their storytelling adventure together began just a few years ago, but being family made it easy.
Grandma (Linda Day), as she is known in the schools, seems like she should be the straight-laced grandma type ... but you would be wrong. She has been known to play a very mean troll who tries to eat poor little billy goat legs and at times has even been seen falling on the floor. But give her a piece of paper and a pair of scissors and she will create art right before your eyes. It's magic or at least that is what the kids think as she unfolds the paper to reveal dragons, butterflies, billy goats and the such.
Her daughter, MyLinda Butterworth ( who is often called Myndy because her first name is hard for most kids to say) loves to start a school session by warming up her lips with a good tongue twister and challenging the kids to say it with her. MyLinda first stood in the spotlight at the tender age of 8 months and her mother has not been able to drag her off the stage yet. Yet all those years of theatre come in handy when she creates different voices for characters or actually acts her age, but is that possible in a short skirt, pantaloons and pony tails? All in all when these two get together to tell stories, well...fun just happens.
Both tellers are award winning authors. Linda's book Grandma's Magic Scissors has won four national and state awards and with her daughter MyLinda they wrote Frogazoom. MyLinda's book The Monster Run is an iParenting Media Award winner and For Health's Sake: A Cancer Survivor's Cookbook is a FPA President's Book Award winner. Her other book Just 24 Days till Christmas has been seen in Woman's Day magazine.
MyLinda has a degree in Theatre Education from Brigham Young University and is Masters Degree in Storytelling from ETSU. While living in Arizona she owned her own theatre company, S.R.O. Theatre Troupe. When she is not chasing two children she is a publisher/book designer for Day to Day Enterprises.
Linda is a mother of eight, grandma of twenty-three and great-grandma of eleven.
MyLinda Butterworth will be presenting The Scarlet 'C' in coordination with Florida StoryCamps', Coming Home to Healing Pre-camp Concert. Elizabeth Ellis and Diane Rooks will be performing at 7 PM, followed by MyLinda at 8 PM. During this performance MyLinda will take you on her journey through cancer and show you how that Scarlet 'C' has changed her life forever. This performance fulfills the "My Finest Hour" requirements for a Masters Degree… Continue
