Join storytellers and folklore experts, Dr. Sara Cleto and Dr. Brittany Warman, for a fascinating look at cats in folklore and fairy tales. We'll email the Zoom link closer to the program time.
The cat was worshiped in ancient Egypt, feared as an agent of the Devil in early Europe, and celebrated and reviled throughout the Western world as a witch’s familiar, a creature of magic and mischief.
Cats have been associated with a huge variety of folk beliefs, folk magics, and folktales. But did you know about the enormous Cat Sith of Celtic folklore, the Norwegian Forest Cats of the goddess Freya, or the monstrous Yule Cat of Iceland?
Cats prowl through our fairy tales, too. We will quest with “Puss in Boots,” converse with “The White Cat,” observe the ascension of royalty in “The King of Cats,” and more. Sometimes they are kind helpers, sometimes they are dastardly tricksters. Frequently they are both in the exact same tale.
With a cat, you can never be sure what you’re going to get!
Suitable for adults & teens. Free & open to the public. We'll email the Zoom link closer to the program time.
