Ancient Stories, Modern Times
Storytelling with David Thompson

A great time to relax before Thanksgiving and hear some enchanting stories. Let's give thanks to the art of epic storytelling!

Known in the storytelling world as an avid teller of the ancient epics, ballads, and sagas, David Thompson has appeared on 3 continents in venues ranging from an oversized drainage pipe in Berlin, Germany to Hyde Park Square in London, England to Red Square in Moscow, Russia and feaured on National Public Radio. He delights in bringing the ancient stories to modern times and has been awarded several honours for preserving these. People have called his telling "intense, moving, and amazing." As another teller has said, "He takes no prisoners."

Are you ready to hear about warrior queens, god-inspired heroes, mortals encountering the dark fairies, and long lived love?

 

Come celebrate the holidays with the Austin Public Library!
