Slavic Folktales for Grownups

The Neverborn Maiden and other Slavic Folktales for Grownups (Virtual)
Thursday, January 28th at 6:30 pm

This is a virtual Zoom program. Email Kim in order to receive the link to attend.

The folklore of Russia and other Slavic countries is rich and fascinating. Storyteller Priscilla Howe creates a tapestry of Slavic tales to warm us all on a winter's night. Priscilla speaks Russian and Bulgarian, and will do her best to answer your questions on Slavic folklore as well.

The Saturday Book Club is also reading Katherine Arden's book The Bear and the Nightingale (in January), which is a lot of Russian folklore, but you don't need to read the book to enjoy Priscilla's stories!

We've Been Here Before: 1918 Pandemic

We've Been Here Before! The 1918 Pandemic (Virtual)
Wednesday, February 10th at 7:00 pm

This is a virtual Zoom program. Register by clicking this link in order to receive the link to attend.

They say history doesn’t repeat itself, but that it rhymes. This past year was an exceptional echo. In 1918-1919, our nation weathered and survived a pandemic that claimed over 600,000 lives in the United States. Join a group of NE Kansas libraries, including ours, and Lora Vogt of the National WWI Museum and Memorial for a moderated discussion on the 1918 flu pandemic and explore what we can learn from this moment in U.S. history.

Moderated by Rimsie McConiga of the Platte County Citizen, there will be an opportunity to submit questions at your Zoom registration, and the libraries also invite questions to be submitted to herebefore@basehorlibrary.org by February 4. A live “chat” submission of questions will also be provided at the end of the discussion.
