Anansi the Spider: A Tale from the Ashanti
Café & Bookstore
On Sunday, May 21, Myth & Mouth presents Anansi the Spider: A Tale from the Ashanti, selected and told by educator Shayna Strype, as written and illustrated by Gerald McDermott.
In this playful story of a father’s difficult choice to reward one of his sons after they save him from a terrible danger, we’ll meet Anansi, the trickster spider, and his six sons from West Africa and Caribbean folklore of how the moon came to be in the sky.
During this edition of Myth & Mouth, Shayna invites participants to join her in telling the story of Anansi by guiding the group in a simple spider-making activity.
This event is free and open to all families, especially participants ages 3+. All are welcome to drop by, though prior registration is recommended.
