NYWM: Day Sixteen

Melbourne fairytale fans unite! Monash University Caulfield’s Fairy Tale Reading Group will be hosting an afternoon of fairytale magic today next Saturday from 2-6pm. Long before the brothers Grimm and Walk Disney, a circle of 17th century French authors gathered in Paris salons to read, perform and discuss fairytales. This is your chance to go along and learn about the authors who shaped fairytale history with readings, performances and discussions of all things fairytale. For all enquiries contact arts-fairytale@monash.edu
