Six storytellers and a couple of additional listeners, gathered on March 18, at the home of Margaret Chatham in Falls Church VA, to hear folktales from around the world. Margaret Chatham began the telling with an Irish tale, The Fairy Spancil.
Bill Mayhew followed up with another Irish tale, How the Plow Came to Ireland.
Elsa Stecher took us to China with The Young Head of the Family.
Eve Burton told The Firebird from Mythical Birds and Beasts from Many Lands, by Margaret Mayo
Miriam Nadel told Tia Miseria.
Finally, Bill Mayhew enticed Roger Metcalf to tell his first story ever, No News. Roger even did the hard part! We’re all proud of him for it.
The storytelling was followed by delicious snacks including homemade peanut-butter cookies.
