Fairytales, Fables & Rhymes
Childhood stories are not the stuff of fantasy. In ages past when illiteracy ran high, these fables and rhymes were the moral classroom where one learned all there was to know about truth, justice, faith, prejudice, love, sex, sin, crime and punishment. Bedtime stories shape our beliefs and teach us about real life.
In this lively, 1-hour presentation, Lianne Harris turns the pages of these classic stories and illustrates how – because of our deeply ingrained remembrances of these stories – our behaviour and attitudes have been shaped.
