'Brave Girls and Wise Women'
- Tuesday, Aug. 6, 1 p.m., Silver Bay Public Library.
- Friday, Aug. 9, 10:30 a.m., Two Harbors Public Library.
Join Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux for a storytelling adventure. Hear how Tatterhood battles a band of trolls, Manka solves impossible riddles and Vasalisa dares to knock at the witch’s door. Daring heroines reclaim fairytales as fierce, funny and feminine.
The program is 60 minutes and intended for youth ages 7-12, but appropriate and enjoyable for teens, mixed age audiences and adults. Stories will likely be too long for kids younger than age 6.
This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
