About Ananse Storytelling with Nana Yaa Yeboaa
Come join us for an enchanting afternoon of Ananse storytelling with the captivating Nana Yaa Yeboaa on February 10th, 2024 at 2:00 PM!
Oral tradition is key in Africa and elsewhere. Ananse stories originate in Ghana, West Africa. These are ancient stories that relate to people’s normal lives, and are as relevant now as when they were created. Normally stories are told around the fireside, but today we get a chance to sit down with an expert who can talk about and share Anansi stories in the beautiful Belleville library.
$10.00 per person.
