The Wolf in the Woods: How Fairy Tales and Legends Live On in Modern Novels and Films

April 3 - April 24

$30 – $90

We all grew up with fairy tales and legends, but as adults, we may dismiss them as fit only for children. Our most talented novelists and filmmakers, though, keep using these very old stories as the basis for their own books and movies: in modern dress and in modern times, Cinderella keeps winning out over her stepsisters, and the Beast continues to be just what Beauty needed. In this lecture series, we’ll examine some of the most interesting examples of contemporary novels and films built around these ancient tales. Bresciano, once again, brings you ageless tales that continue to entertain and inspire us today. 

Space is limited. This is a 4-week series.

Wednesdays, April 3, 10, 17, 24
3:00 PM – 4:30 PM
