The Summer Reading Program at the Vail Library culminates is a grand performance from 1 to 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 4, in the Community Room at the Town of Vail Library. Attendees will receive a visit from ventriloquist Wayne Francis and his sidekick Wingnut the Pilot.

Francis is gifted with a unique style of vocal magic and comedy ventriloquist. He has more than 8,000 performances to his credit and has performed all over the country. He travels to Vail from Denver for the benefit of both guest and resident children.

“My performance is sure to take you on a once-in-a-lifetime flight through the imagination,” he said. “It is more fun than a room full of rhinos.”

He assured the Town of Vail Library that he and his life-sized puppet will “barnstorm their way into the hearts” of summer readers.
