We have to find a version of Little Red Riding Hood that we like for Storytelling next week. I now have an old medieval version, several other traditional folk versions, a feminist retelling, gritty modern poetry, a version done as Holocaust narrative, a really weird French version… I also have quite a few other books of folktales to flip through. I was rather proud of myself for figuring out that the catalog was probably not in error when it found me a book entitled “Lishon ʻim Kipah Adumah, la-ḳum ʻim Sheloshah Ḥazironim Ḳeṭanim”.
Edit: I also forgot to mention that LANES (the New England storytelling organization) is having its annual storytelling conference in March in Rhode Island. I think I’m going to go.
