The Return of the Fairytale – in She-Wolf’s Clothing
Talk by Marina Warner

Saturday 17 July 2010

3.00 – 4.30pm

Since Angela Carter re-worked some of the nursery classics and other fairytales in her collection ‘The Bloody Chamber’, familiar heroines like Cinderella, Beauty, Snow White and others, have inspired many women writers and artists to follow her into that forbidden room.

Marina Warner will explore the surprising character of fairytale - and its protagonists - after Angela Carter.

Refreshments available from the Food Frome Café.

Part of the 'Through the Woods, Darkly' programme.


£5 per person.

Please book places in advance to avoid disappointment.
