Free and open to the public.

Youth Services Librarians will create and present a school age program that will share a few of Zora Neale Hurston’s collected folklore tales or Poirquoi Stories / Origin Stories. Storytelling of selected folk tales will be presented with puppets, followed by a related science experiment, and an opportunity to make art that relates to one of the tales presented.

Hurston collected folktales as she traveled the back roads of Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisana so that the spirit and richness of the oral storytelling tradition could be shared and preserved. The programs will feature stories from What’s the Hurry, Fox? , Lies and other Tall Tales, and Go Gator and Muddy the Water.
