The first of 4 monthly Sunday afternoon Book Talks with Tea, laid on by The Friends of Chagford Library in aid of Library funds.
Come at 2:15 for tea and cake, and an author talk at 3:00.
Terri Windling is an American editor, artist, essayist, and the author of books for both children and adults. Windling has won nine World Fantasy Awards, the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and her collection The Armless Maiden appeared on the short-list for the James Tiptree, Jr. Award.
In this talk she discusses the importance of adapting ancient tales for modern times, and how such stories can help us navigate the many challenges we face today. While ecologists speak of "re-wilding" certain landscapes, she believes in "re-storying" the land, reclaiming the tales that connect us to natural world and re-shaping them for creating a better world.
