THURSDAY, April 15th at 7pm: POETRY THIS YEAR


In the corporeal world, Caledonia works at her State Arts Commission with a national program called Poetry Out Loud.  The program is in its 16th year, and Cale has been working with it for almost 8 years.  Every year she has shared some of the poems chosen by the 9-12 grade students in the program from over 1100 available to them in an online anthology.  

Tonight, selections from this year's poems, live.

WEDNESDAY, April 14th at 7pm: WHEN YOU TRAP A TIGER Begins


When Lily and her family move in with her ailing Halmoni (grandmother), a magical tiger straight out of her halmoni’s Korean folktales arrives, prompting Lily to unravel a secret family history.

Long, long ago, Halmoni stole something from the tigers and now the tigers want it back. So the tiger visiting has 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.

THURSDAY March 18th 7:00pm - 8:30pm: DARBY O'GILL and the BANSHEE'S COMB pt2

 

THE BANSHEE'S COMB
Recorded as a true event in early 1800s, a young boy had the temerity to steal a comb from a banshee. Banshees are an Irish entity that will sing laments for people before they die; and for the crime of stealing the banshee's comb the youth was haunted and driven by her phantom keening and wailing until he was almost dead... 

Tonights story is of a similar encounter that Darby O'Gill once had, in which he finds the end part of a comb that later turns out to belong to a banshee. In her attempts to locate the missing piece, the phantom woman summons up a host of ghosts from the graveyard to sweep through the countryside and towns looking for it! If you want to know how Darby O'Gill escapes, well... come hear the story tonight!

"All at once the side of the mountain ferninst them opened with a great crash, an' Shaun, with the coach an' horses, disaypeared in a rush, swolleyd up be the mountain, which closed afther thim. Darby was blinkin' an' shiverin' beside the King of the Leprechauns,when sudden, an' without a sound, the banshee stood before them."
