The story of the Fern Flower is an old tale, one which is well known amongst the Ukrainian people. It was interesting to see how those who did not know this story paid close attention and later admired the skill with which it was told by James Novak. With children, parents and even elderly people coming and going as the time went by and with some who stayed from beginning to end, the hours flowed by quickly. Kosa Kolektiv’s traditional songs accompanying the tales added to the magic followed by traditional folk snacks. A special thank you to Storytelling Toronto for joining us and adding tales of their own.
See some photos of what the event looked like:
