FLORENCE, AZ – A swift crack of the bull whip will set the summer season in motion and Indiana Bones is riding into Pinal County towns for some storytelling fun. The Pinal County Library District and its partner libraries teamed up to host Indiana Bones, an energetic storyteller who will capture the attention of audiences of all ages.
Mike McCartney, who stars as Indiana Bones, is an Emmy Award winning writer, performer and producer. The tales he weaves during his performances incorporate adventure, archeology, folklore, myths and legends. McCartney has been a PBS documentary producer, TV personality and professional actor as well as university lecturer.
When he’s not out gathering fossils and artifacts for his stories, hunting down audiences to entertain and sparking imaginations across the country, McCartney resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
“We are always looking at neat ways to kick off the summer and there’s nothing like a good storyteller to spark the imagination,” said Denise Keller, Pinal County Library District Director.
