Some of New York’s most famous storytellers from the Hans Christian Andersen Storytelling Center present exciting fairy and folk tales and other fantastic adventures from Scandinavia and the far north.
On Saturday we will present “The Moomins and other Mountain Folk: Tales from Northern Lands,” with storytellers Melissa Heckler & Therese Folkes Plair. Come hear some adventures of the beloved Moomins along with assorted Nordic folk such as trolls, elves, and other creatures.
About the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers
Since 1957, on Saturdays during the summer, New York City’s children have clustered around the Hans Christian Andersen statue near Conservatory Pond in Central Park to hear his and others’ fairy tales, folk stories, and stories told by a dedicated group of professional storytellers.
When the weather turns cooler, the Hans Christian Andersen Storytellers bring their tales to Scandinavia House.
Saturday Morning Storytelling at Scandinavia House is made possible in part by support from DeWitt Stern Group, Inc.
