Upcoming Youth Class at Writers & Books

Fairy Tale Heroines

Monday, August 21- Friday August 25, 2017
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM 
We’ve all learned about sleepy Snow White and drowsy Sleeping Beauty. But Fairy Tales worldwide feature heroines with a little more oomph who were much less likely to doze off at inopportune times. I bet you’ve never heard of England’s “Burd Janet” who rescues a kidnapped Prince. And those fairy godmothers who grant wishes and create some pretty cool fashions for their godchildren? They never get any praise for their super-powers. In this class students will explore fairy tale heroines and discuss new ways to look at some of the classics we’ve read since we were just little children. Students will work together to create a class book of their very own modern fairy tales with a twist.
