Wind in the Willows: Chapter 5

Lis­ten­ing par­ty for The Wind in the Wil­lows, and Spe­cial Lec­ture
Sat­ur­day, May 9,
10am — 12pm SLT
Tinyville Library, Cale­don Tan­gle­wood

Come as a char­ac­ter from Ken­neth Gra­hame’s The Wind in the Wil­lows, and join us as we lis­ten to a dis­cuss a new chap­ter each week 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 month, the sto­ry con­tin­ues as Mole, return­ing from day’s out­ing with Rat, is sud­den­ly over­come with nos­tal­gia as he hears the call of his old home, “Mole End”. Mole shows Rat­ty his digs and they light the place up in time to receive the vis­it of the neigh­bor­hood Field Mice, who have come a‑caroling. Mole’s hos­pitable nature prompts him to invite them all in for sup­per, and a jol­ly par­ty ensues.

The scenes at Mole End are some of the most affect­ing in the work, and have been a favorite with many of the work’s illus­tra­tors

After the Lis­ten­ing Par­ty, please join us for a spe­cial Lec­ture as Folk­lorist Afsaneh Met­alu­na explores the folk­loric ele­ments, motifs, and ref­er­ences in Wind in the Wil­lows and in Gra­hame’s world.

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
