Story Hour at the Whitehorn Library, with Gilbert Sapwood
Sunday, April 6th, 2008,6 pm SLT.
On the Great Lawn beside the Caledon Library

From the Wise Men of Chelm to the Marx Brothers, every culture tells stories of roistering pranksters, inspired fools, and sage dunderheads. Join noted storyteller, Gilbert Sapwood, for an hour of tales of clowns and counsellors, grave philosophers and witless numbskulls…and who is to say which is really which? .

The session will be streamed live from the Great Lawn of the Jack & Elaine Whitehorn Memorial Library, in Caledon VictoriaCity.

Following the performance, Gilbert will answer questions regarding traditional tales and the art of storytelling, as time permits.
