Celebrity Storytime with Miss Anastasia

Left Bank Books

At this week's Storytime, Cliff is joined by special guest Miss Anastasia from The Twig Book Shop in San Antonio, Texas!

Anastasia McKenna, aka Miss Anastasia, a former elementary school teacher, has been holding kids spellbound at libraries and bookstores in her unique, lively style for 14 years.  McKenna has logged more than 3,000 performances as Miss Anastasia. Her story started 14 years ago, when she was living in Austin, working at an independent bookstore and as an elementary school teacher. Then she and her husband move to San Antonio in 2000, and she soon became a spokeswoman for the Twig Book Shop, a former Alamo Heights landmark now located at The Pearl on the Museum Reach of the Riverwalk.  Today, McKenna reads at the Twig Book Shop every Friday morning as well as other venues to help encourage reading. She also has shared her techniques on how to read to children to make books more interesting, addressing a state Technology, Entertainment and Design event that can be seen online at

Storytime welcomes children of all ages, and all families large and small, and usually lasts about 30 minutes. Some storytimes feature a guest author, or an activity that ties in to the books we've read that day. There is a cat in the store, but as he doesn't like picture books, he doesn't often join us. Questions? Email or call 314-367-6731.

Parking: Lots one block north and one block east; street parking (meters free after 7pm). For directions and public transportation information, click here.
