Trickery and Derring-Do: Tales from the Very Far North
Jean Hale and Ellen Shapiro take us to the frozen forests of Norway and Sweden with tales of brave and clever children, a king, and, of course, trolls!
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’ fairytales, 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.
