We had a great time at Fantasy Faire LitFest this last week, with many memorable sessions including the two featured on Tolkien Day.  Good job everyone, and thank you for your enthusiasm and support of this terrific and powerful Second Life Fundraising event, benefiting Relay for Life:

We Are The Cure!

There's still lots going on at Fantasy Faire and lots of ways you can participate. Check out the schedule of Faire Happenings online!

One last reminder about Fantasy Faire if you hadn't seen this Drax Files episode before.  As a bit of trivia, once Shandon and Cale saw this, they contacted Zander Greene with an interest in getting the Library involved in doing live story sessions at the Faire.  Other people had the same notion, and the next year, Fantasy Faire Litfest made its Faire Lands debut.  Funny old virtual world, ain't it?



All sessions held at the Seanchai Library in Second Life unless otherwise indicated. Stories in voice. Schedule subject to change, because that is just how life rolls sometimes.

THURSDAY April 27th at 7pm: Monsters and Myth: THE CHIMAERA part two


"...a boy’s aspirations, a king’s cruelty, a poet’s dreams..."
Monsters & Myth: THE CHIMAERA
part 2

The Chimaera – a fire-breathing winged monster with the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. Plaguing the lands of the Middle Sea, this fantastic creature comes into confrontation with the young hero, Bellerophon. The youth proves to be a worthy match, having already succeeded in his conquest of the tyrant king, Melicertes. Bellerophon’s adventures, which reach a climax in his battle with the Chimaera, provide a rich and powerful story of young ambition, evil intention, and poetic desire. The tale of the Chimaera is one of conflicting emotions, and the endless struggle against the demands of fate. It is about a boy’s aspirations, a king’s cruelty, a poet’s dreams, and the capricious nature of the gods – all magnified and illuminated within the turbulent world of myth.

It's Tolkien Day at Fantasy Faire Litfest!

@7PM - A WALK THROUGH MIDDLE EARTH
Seanchai Library takes you on a walk through Middle Earth, with selections from different episodes in the works of Tolkien involving The One Ring.. Corwyn Allen, Aoife Lorefield, Kayden Oconnell, .

TUESDAY, April 25th at 7pm: THE MEAD OF POETS

"Do you wonder where poetry comes from? . . . It is a long story, and it does no credit to to anyone: there is murder in it, and trickery, lies, and foolishness, seduction and pursuit.  Listen."

Caledonia shares THE MEAD OF POETS, a story selected from Neil Gaiman's recently released "Norse Mythology", live in voice at Fantasy Faire LitFest 2017.

MONDAY, April 24th at 7pm: A MIRACLE OF SMALL FISHES


We begin the week at Fantasy Faire LitFest 2017, with Gyro and "A Miracle of Small Fishes" by Alan Dean Foster.

Grandfather Flores was old but not too old to keep fishing.  If only there were still fish.  The sardines were all caught before they got as far south as San Quentin.  All Grandfather wanted was just one more good catch.  It would take a miracle.

FRIDAY April 21st at 6pm: REQUIEM - by Robert Heinlein

REQUIEM
by Robert Heinlein

Harriman, a tycoon and latter-day robber baron, had always dreamed of going to the Moon, and had spent much of his career and resources making space flight a practical commercial enterprise. Unfortunately, his business partners prevented him from taking the early flights because they could not risk the public face of their company. Now an old man, Harriman has still not been to the Moon, a fact that frustrates him, since he lives in a world where space travel is so commonplace that carnivals have their own barnstorming spacecraft. Although no longer bound by his contractual obligations, he is now too old to pass the medical examination needed for space travel.

"... It's a good book about how friendships can grow. I am always amazed at how different others are able to portray magic in different ways, such as how its used, who can use it, why it's used. This is one of those books that have an interesting and different take on magic." ~ Reader Review

SUNDAY, March 26th Beginning at 1PM: VOLUME IX ~ Seanchai Library Anniversary


Nine years ago someone had an idea.  That someone was Derry McMahon, founder of Seanchai Library, which began its life at the West of Ireland Library and Cultural Center in March 2008.

Nine years ~ 108 months ~ 3,287-ish days ~ Thousands of hours of stories ~ Hundreds of Authors ~ Dozens of Genres, and over $4000 in small cash donations to non-profits doing good works all around the world.

"We are not large scale philanthropy, " Library lead Caledonia Skytower discloses, "Giving back to the world community through small charitable gifts is just one aspect of what we do. Job #1 here is to inspire people with stories and literature, to enable or encourage them to read and to share the stories they love with others.  Stories are an intrinsic part fo the human experience."

It's a little hard to conceive how to acknowledge such an achievement. The Library looked to polite society to see if there was a guide as to how to celebrate a ninth anniversary: willow and pottery in traditional observance, and leather in the modern.  "That's it!" they cried, "It's obvious! A virtual Chili Cook Off!" . . . and that, friends, is what they will present today in both Kitely and in Second Life.


Dual Video feeds and Local Chat "Simlinks" will connect the two parties, enabling celebrants in both grids to see the other party, and to communicate in local text chat.
    
@1pm - Chili Cook Off: Stories and Recipe Exchange
                 (bring your favorite chili recipe on a notecard and drop it off at the library
                 before hand, or bring it with you and hand it to Caledonia)
               
@ 2pm - 4pm - Dancing under the Cook-Off Marquee turn up the 
                  Volume  and dance to the HOT TUNES of DJ Dano Bookmite.

In Second Life (look for the teleport poster to take you to the party)
