Tricksters and Wise Women: How Stories Travel the World

Date and Time: June 14, 2022, 6:00 PM CT

Location: Bradford Memorial Library, 611 S Washington St, El Dorado
(view on google maps)

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. Presented by Priscilla Howe.
