Update July 6, 2022: Due to an injury sustained by musician Patty Larkin, this year's Wayzgoose will be postponed until
Patty has had time to heal and play guitar again. Here's a bit of what you can expect once we have our new Wayzgoose date set:
bedtime stories for kids & sleepy adults
It's late June and here in the Northern Hemisphere, we find ourselves at the Summer Solstice (June 21 at 5:13 AM here in Florida).
It's the astronomical start of summer, but in traditional reckoning of time, this time of longest days and shortest nights is thought
of as the height of summer, hence its traditional name: Midsummer, for the days have been growing longer up until this point, and now,
they begin to grow shorter. For centuries, St. John's Day, June 24, has been known as Midsummer Day, and its eve, the night before on June
23, has long been considered a magical time (much like Christmas Eve is at the opposite side of the wheel of the year).
William Shakespeare certainly reckoned time this way and so for
Episode No. 4 of our Stay Awake Bedtime Stories series, we invite you
to Stay Awake with John Cutrone as he reads you A Midsummer Night's Dream, in a story version adapted from both Shakespeare's play and
from A Midsummer Night's Dream for Children, which was written by Edith Nesbit in 1899. Our version is an updated mash-up of the two.
Now Through Letterpress Appreciation Days
(September 18 and 19, 2022)
Wimberly Library Main Lobby (1st Floor)
and Jaffe Center for Book Arts Lobby (3rd Floor East)
A core concept at FAU Libraries' Jaffe Center for Book Arts is that there is more than one way to define "book."
There is also more than one way to tell a story. What if we told a story without words? Could we tell a story solely
through a sequence of images?
