Merry Christmas Everyone!

Everything in this picture I made myself!
(Well, not the with a saw is not a good idea.)
What a wonderful holiday season I am having!  Making gifts, baking cookies, EATING.  I am just so grateful to have had the most wonderful year thanks to all of you coming to my shows, purchasing my literary designs, and reading this blog.  Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with love, laughter, food, and a good book that you can dance to!  

As I am hosting Christmas Eve dinner for my family, I have to run but here's another look at my "I Ran After the Gingerbread Man" holiday video.  And, yes, I am having four different types of gingerbread tonight: cookies, cheesecake, cake and tea!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

This holiday season, don't forget to order the librarian or book lover in your life one of my literary fashions!  Items include wristlet purses, fanny packs, cosmetic bags, Christmas stockings, scarves and headbands - all in literary prints - because if there is one thing smarter than reading a book, it is wearing it!  Please visit for more information (and custom orders), or go directly to my Etsy Shop for items ready to ship.  Each item comes with a free bookmark!

For a limited time, I am also selling my signature bow headband that I wear on stage.  I've had so many compliments on it (not to mention, requests to sell it) that I will try to meet the demand and produce a few of them for my special patrons who want one.

For Immediate Release

NEW YORK, NY (November 15, 2012) – “So a comedian walks into a library and decides to work there…”  Comedian/Librarian Meredith Myers, also known as TheStand-Up Librarian, brings her all-literary comedy show to The Strand Book Store on December 6th. The event begins at 7pm and the purchase of a $10 Strand gift card is required to attend.

You’ve seen stand-up, but not like this!  Myers will perform an hour of hilarious literary entertainment for all ages as she riffs on pop culture icons, authors, story time, and books, books, books.  A combination of Pippi Longstocking and Sandra Bernhard with the wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw, Myers entertains while educates about the importance of literacy and libraries as she addresses Melvil Dewey and the Dewey Decimal System, honors Edgar Allan Poe in a rock n’ roll musical parody, and dances on a book cart in a delicious holiday-inspired musical number all in literary costumes she sews herself!  There will most certainly be no shushing at this show!

Myers has a Masters degree in Library and Information Sciences and has been performing stand-up comedy across the country since 2002 after checking out a comedy book from her local library.  She wrote, produced and starred in her one-woman show Like a Publicist off-off Broadway in 2003, which received rave reviews and was based on her years working in public relations for celebrities Hugh Jackman and Jeremy Renner to Diana Krall and Whitney Houston.  Binding her experiences in comedy and libraries, Meredith created in June of 2010 to educate and entertain people about the importance of libraries and literacy.  In 2012, she launched so she would have something literary fabulous to wear!  Her literary purses are carried by The Strand and are available for purchase at the show.  Myers currently lives in St. Petersburg, FL and performs at library and book events across the country.

This event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.  The purchase of a $10 Strand gift card is required to attend and may be used at any time, towards any purchase at the Strand.

"I Ran After the Gingerbread Man"

"I Ran After the Gingerbread Man":

I decided to premiere my new holiday literary parody video live on stage at my sold-out shows at Venue Theatre this past weekend where I choreographed a chase sequence with a real ginger man (my friend, librarian Justin Brasher) and concluded with gingerbread man cookies I baked myself.  It was so fun (not to mention quite delicious I was told!)  I will also be performing it at The Strand Book Store in NYC on Thursday, but sadly my ginger will be unable to make the trip and me baking cookies might be difficult as well, but I certainly hope anybody in the New York area will still attend the show!  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video.  I made the entire gingerbread man outfit myself and actually do own most of the gingerbread man decorations shown.

Information on Thursday's show in NYC:
