To close out the 2011-12 Two Voices season, join us for a special evening on translating fairy tales!
Kate Bernheimer, Ilya Kaminsky, and Maria Tatar take you deep into the dark woods with readings from classic and contemporary fairytales. And these aren't the fairytales you grew up with—they're the darkest, scariest tales you've ever heard! A reception with cash bar will follow the event.
If you can make it, definitely plan to drop by. This event is super affordable, and promises to be a memorable experience!
