THURSDAY August 18th at 7pm: Monsters & Myth - THE CALYDONIAN BOAR pt1

   


"Impending evil, friendships & hope, battles & blossoming love"
THE CALYDONIAN BOAR pt1

The Calydonian Boar - A ferocious wild beast able to trample a warrior to bloody rags beneath its razor hooves. The boar is the handiwork of Artemis, goddess of the moon, who created it using mud from the River of Tears,where the strong wind caries the shrieks of the tormented, and hungry vultures hover like gulls. Artemis's monster ravages the land, carrying out the vain goddess's evil plan to randomly destroy mortal after mortal.

Meanwhile, a small child soon to be Artemis's main rival in strength and beauty is being raised in the hills by a family of bears. The wild child,Atalanta, grows into a mighty huntress who staunchly defends her animal family at any price. When one of her brothers is killed Meleager, heir to the throne of Calydon, she becomes immersed in a complicated struggle for love and power that involves not Meleager and herself, but also the king and queen of Calydon,the queen's two idiot brothers, a murderous band of outlaws, and a ferocious Simba hound that becomes Meleager's ally and best friend. But at the center ofit all stands the Calydonian boar, the most dangerous and threatening beast inthe land.

The tale of the Calydonian boar takes place in a world where no one is safe from impending evil. But it is also a world in which friendships grow and hope triumphs, as a huntress and her prince bravely battle against gods and beasts in order to protect their blossoming love.

@7PM: THE LAST CUENTISTA - Continues

There lived a girl named Petra Peña, who wanted nothing more than to be a storyteller, like her abuelita.

But Petra’s world is ending. Earth has been destroyed by a comet, and only a few hundred scientists and their children – among them Petra and her family – have been chosen to journey to a new planet. They are the ones who must carry on the human race.

Hundreds of years later, Petra wakes to this new planet – and the discovery that she is the only person who remembers Earth. A sinister Collective has taken over the ship during its journey, bent on erasing the sins of humanity’s past. They have systematically purged the memories of all aboard – or purged them altogether.

Petra alone now carries the stories of our past, and with them, any hope for our future. Can she make them live again?

THURSDAY, August 11th: Wit & Adventure on the Story Floor

 @7pm - KEEP IT BRIEF with R. Dismantled

One of Seanchai Library's oldest friends and supporters returns to the Story Floor to "Keep It Brief" sharing 100 word stories from his vast canon of compositions.  

Always unpredictable and irreverent, no subject is too sacred, no cow too holy for R. not to pull it out, examine it, and bang it on the table a few times before putting it back where he found it - albeit slightly crumpled. Long ago, he swore an oath to write a 100 word story every day until the day he died. He's not dead yet. And no, he never has opinions! http://oneadayuntilthedayidie.com/


 @9pm - SEANCHAI LATE NIGHT  with Finn Zeddmore

Finn returns to her late night SL slot with more Sci-Fi short stories from a variety of sources. What adventure will she take us on this time?

MONDAY, August 8th at 7pm: MARK TWAIN SHORTS

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835 –1910) known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He was lauded as the "greatest humorist the United States has produced", and William Faulkner called him "the father of American literature."

Caledonia shares selections tonight, including his humorous story "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" published in 1865, and based on a story that he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner.

MONDAY, August 1st at 7pm: DANDELION WINE Continues

Caledonia Skytower presents more adventures into summer from this Bradbury classic.

The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding—remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury.

Presented LIVE at the firecircle.
