Event Description

Folk and Fairy Tale Slam - 

Laura Packer knows that the best way to the truth is through a good story. Whether folktale or true, epic or flash, her stories captivate and amuse audiences around the world. Laura has told, taught, ranted, raved, consulted and considered storytelling around the world.

Bringing Back the Light features Laura's retellings of Persephone's tale, How Raven Brought Light to the World and more. Mythic stories that reveal our secret lives, best told in the dark and considered by daylight on this longest night of the year.
