Steve Mellow's passion for the arts came early in life. Once, in his fourth-grade classroom in Chicago, Mellow, who was 10 and taking acting lessons, volunteered to re-enact the events at Plymouth Rock. He says he took control of the class. "The first row of kids was pilgrims, the second row, the Indians, and third row was the reporters. It was spontaneous; we had a great time," recalls Mellow.

An official with Rizzoli Book Store in New York, which also owns Scribner stores, confirmed that it canceled its contract Wednesday with Mellow for his regular reading sessions at Scribner in the Crystal Court shopping mall in Costa Mesa.
