Tuesday, June 9 @ 7 pm via Zoom

The Brothers Grimm traveled across Europe in the 1800s collecting folktales that eventually became the classic fairytales children read today. However, most were never intended for children. This talk explores the story of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and discusses why collecting folktales is important for understanding a community’s values and fears.

Presented by Priscilla Howe. This program is made possible by Humanities Kansas.

Most Kansans are familiar with the stories of grasshoppers so big that cowboys could ride them, or summers so hot that corn popped in the field. Kansas is a place of big skies and tall tales, but these exaggerated narratives help us understand the character of our state and its people. This presentation will explore some of the many legends and folktales from around the state, and what they say about the communities that keep these stories alive. Presented by Jim Hoy. This program is made possible by Humanities Kansas. Please REGISTER!
