Fairy Tales and Folklore

There is no "happily ever after."

Alethea Kontis

45 Minute Program

 

$149


Alethea might have majored in Chemistry and Marine Science, but her true love has always been fairy tales. She has studied fables and folklore from around the world, and she enjoys nothing more than retelling them with a modern (and sometimes sci-fi!) sensibility. She's hosted more than 55 episodes of her "Fairy Tale Rants" on YouTube...because seriously, y'all, some of these old tales are beyond belief. (And there will always be so much more to learn!)

Sit down with Alethea to chat about her favorite fairy tales, old and new, and the different ways in which she's retold them. Let's talk Perrault, Grimm, Lang, San Souci, Asbjørnsen & Moe and more -- NO DISNEY PLEASE (unless you really, really want to).
