Register for "The World of Russian Fairy Tales" at the Newberry this summer

Join Julia Denne at the Newberry Library this summer and explore the world of Russian fairy tales! Russian fairy tales are many and varied, ranging from the familiar (evil stepmothers and magic flying carpets) to the fantastic (Baba Yaga who flies in a pestle or a hump-backed horse). Russian fairy tales reveal a great deal about Russian traditions and history. Taking an analytical approach, we will examine not only the tales, but also the beliefs, worldviews, and related myths and legends in both ancient Slavic pagan and more recent Eastern Orthodox Church traditions.
