THURSDAY May 13th at 7pm: Monsters of Mythology - ANTEUS!

       

"The gods are watching
Monsters of Mythology - ANTEUS!
part 2 of 2

Anteus is the monster antihero of tonight’s story. He is the towering, bloodthirsty son of Mother Earth and the Serpent of Chaos, a cannibal giant made happy only by the cries of human suffering. He is a hated but invincible king - until he encounters Hercules.
Their battle is arranged by Hera, Queen of the Gods. In a jealous rage, she has conspired to tilt the outcome in the giant's favor. Anteus has been given a magical power, so that if he is knocked to earth he will rise up stronger than before. Hercules is then made to vow that he will fight unarmed. Only as tall as Anteus's knee, the Theban hero appears doomed.
But other gods are watching . . .
This is a tale of comrades lost and prophecies fulfilled; of magically monstrous forces in battle. It is a riveting saga of those who thrive on revenge and are fueled by bloodlust, but it also tells of the even stronger powers of compassion and hope. It is about jealous rivalries and angers expanded to the scale of giants and gods, about brave sacrifices and heroic deeds, all within the turbulent world of myth occupied by heroes, gods, and monsters.

WEDNESDAY, May 12th at 7pm: WHEN YOU TRAP A TIGER Continues


Long, long ago, Lily's halmoni (grandmother) stole something from the tigers and now the tigers want it back. The tigers have arrived with an offer for Lily: return what Halmoni stole in exchange for the return of her Halmoni’s health.

It is a tempting offer; but deals with magical tigers are not always what they appear to be. So Lily must, with the help of her sister and her friend Ricky, find her voice and her courage, and face whatever trickery the tiger may conjure.

Caledonia Skytower reads the 2021 Newbery Medal winning story by Tae Keller.

WEDNESDAY, April 7th at 7pm: THE GUNS OF AVALON Concludes

Corwyn Allen wraps up this chapter Prince Corwin's epic journey to free his rightful kingdom of Amber, live on stream.

One of the most revered names in sf and fantasy, the incomparable Roger Zelazny was honored with numerous prizes—including six Hugo and three Nebula Awards—over the course of his legendary career. Among his more than fifty books, arguably Zelazny’s most popular literary creations were his extraordinary Amber novels. The Guns of Avalon is the second book of The Chronicles of Amber.

Across the worlds of Shadow, Corwin, Prince of blood royal, heir to the throne of Amber, gathers his forces for an assault that will yield up to him the crown that is rightfully his. But, a growing darkness of his own doing threatens his plans, an evil that stretches to the heart of the perfect kingdom itself where the demonic forces of Chaos mass to annihilate Amber and all who would rule there.
