Storytelling: “Gather Around the Fire” – Children’s Folk Stories from Zimbabwe
March 15, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
“Gather Around the Fire”: Children’s Folk Stories from Zimbabwe
Presented by NATHALIE MINYA
Join Nathalie to hear stories from her childhood in Zimbabwe. As she says, “Growing up in Zimbabwe, we would visit our grandparents in the village. They didn’t have any books to read us, so we gathered around the fire and listened to them tell us stories of the hare and the rabbit and many more. It was the most awesome time and we didn’t even miss the books. Their stories were always creative, funny, and there was always an important life lesson to learn.”
Come and experience one of the crafts that Nathalie used to do as a child — making a village hut on paper with sticks and dirt!
Free for I-House members, others pay $2 per person, $5 per family.
