Add this Event to Calendar 12/08/2020 01:00 PM 12/08/2020 02:00 PM Holiday Stories with Alan Irvine

Join Storyteller Alan Irvine for an exploration of the Christmas and Hanukkah seasons. Alan will tell the tales of the origins of both holidays, and then take us on a journey into folktales and legends and literary stories inspired by the season - some moving, some silly.

Alan Irvine, PhD, is a local storyteller, director, and playwright. His stories include folk tales, literary adaptations, and original tales. He has always loved Christmas-time, not just to celebrate, but to research and learn about. Alan owns an impressive collection of books on the history and traditions of the season.

Holiday Stories with Alan Irvine will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.
