From the Library…The Wind in the Willows

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Saturday, 10 January, 2009

Today, Radio Riel begins a special series on the second Saturday of every month from January 2009 to January 2010! Our music program for the day is English Country Dance and Folk music, and the special program of the day is…

Wind in the Willows Listening Party
Inaugural party and broadcast!
Chapter 1: The River Bank
Saturday, Jan 10th
10am-11am SLT
Tinyville Library, Caledon Tanglewood

Come as a character from Kenneth Grahame’s novel, The Wind in the Willows, and join us as we listen to, and discuss, a new chapter each month of the adventures of the shy but loyal Mole, the poetical Water Rat, the brave Otter, the gruff but kindly Mr. Badger, the vainglorious Toad, and all the other creatures of wood, stream, and field who populate this much-loved story.

This week, the story begins as Mole, tired of his Spring Cleaning, makes a break for it and meets the Water Rat…and The River…and finds that there’s nothing so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

Big People may join us in Tinyville, or repose in comfort at the Oxbridge Library in Caledon Oxbridge

Those who can’t be with us in-world are invited to tune in at

This is a year-long series, the second Saturday of each month, 2009. Sponsored by the Caledon Library and Rachelville, and produced by Radio Riel
