SPCL and The Big Read Programs for School Age Kids (Lake Mary)

Feb 4, 2016; 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Location: Northwest Branch Library (Lake Mary), 580 Green Way Boulevard, Lake Mary, FL 32746

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 Louisiana 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.
