It gives the entire family a chance to experience new and different cultures, literature and the arts.
Following on the success of last year’s, 400 Years of Shakespeare community literary read, the City is excited to continue its RC Reads Cultural Arts Night program. Classic stories by Hans Christian Anderson, the Brothers Grimm and others have delighted people for generations. “RC Reads is a fantastic opportunity for generations of families to connect through the fantasy and enchantment of fairy tales,” says Angelica Trummell, Children’s Services Supervisor, “fairy tales encourage imagination, teach us about other cultures, and create an opportunity for families to bond through beloved stories.”
The event will feature activities and performances for children, teens, and adults. Highlights will include a performance ofPrincesses, Dragons and Dreams Come True from storyteller Rebecca Martin, an educational talk by Chaffey College professor Charles Williams, and an Adult & Teen Trivia Challenge: Fairy Tales around the World.
