From the Library…The Wind in the Willows

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
