Fairy Tales for the Future
In dark times people told each other stories for solace, escape and hope. Those were filled with gingerbread houses, glass slippers, talking animals and seven league boots. But what stories are we telling in our dark times? This class will explore how fairy tales have helped people cope through the millennia. We will try our hand at deconstructing older stories and writing new ones that describe the world we live in. Please read all the fairy tales you can before the class. Bring your imagination and your sense of what’s happening now.
A four week course starting in March 2018 – 3/16, 3/23, 4/6, 4/13 (No class on 3/30)
