Library U: Higher Learning for Adults
Join us for our January Library U: Higher Learning for Adults on Thursday, January 19 at 12:15 pm. “Tricksters and Wise Women: How Stories Travel the World” is presented by Priscilla Howe and sponsored by Humanities Kansas.
Folktales reveal what we value, what makes us laugh, what makes us cry, and what we hope to be. There are many versions of the classic Cinderella fairy tale, each representing the culture and place of the people who tell them. At their core, folktales tell life lessons and present the role tricksters and wise women often played. This talk will uncover the differences between myth, legend, tall tale, and folktale, and explore differences between cultural appropriation and cultural appreciation.
This program is part of the Marysville Public Library’s Library U sessions. Programs are geared toward adults but anyone is welcome. Interested in more programs? Check out our website at marysville.lib.nckls.org or call 785-562-2491 for more information.
