ANNOUNCER: And now, Sterling Dance Academy presents ... Dancing with Tammi Sauer!
[she moves her hands and speaks directly to the camera]
TAMMI: Hi, I'm Tammi Sauer. Children's book author, part time dancer, and former librarian. I'm here to help you shake it up on the dance floor! I know you've heard of the "Cotton Eye Joe" and the "Macarena", but today I've got a new move for you! I call it "The Librarian"! When we put it together, it's going to look a little bit like this ...
[she puts her right index finger to her mouth, then her left index finger]
TAMMI: We're going to go "Shhh", "Shhh" ...
[she moves her right hand across her mouth like she's closing a zipper, then her left hand]
TAMMI: "Zip It", "Zip It" ...
[she moves her right hand over her mouth like she's turning a key, then her left hand]
TAMMI: "Lock It", "Lock It" ...
[she makes a move like she's throwing something over her right shoulder, then her left shoulder]
TAMMI: "Throw Away the Key", "Throw Away the Key" ...
[she starts marching in place]
TAMMI: We're gonna march at a ninety-degree angle ...
[she moves her left hand across her nose]
TAMMI: And then we're going to push up the glasses!
[cut to Tammi facing the camera]
TAMMI: Now remember, practice makes perfect!
[she points to the camera]
TAMMI: And I'll see you on the dance floor!

I participated on the Oklahoma Showcase of Authors and Illustrators Panel with the amazing Anna Myers, Darleen Bailey Beard, Dian Curtis Regan, Mike Wimmer, and Chris Nick. During my presentation, I gave some skinny on my books, my school visit presentations, and took the opportunity to debut "The Librarian" in front of a live audience.
One thing is clear ... librarians rock!
