Story time: Drag Queen Story Hour presents Sea Girl: Feminist Folktales From Around the World
Greenlight is thrilled to welcome back The Feminist Press and Drag Queen Story Hour for a very special story time! Inspired by RADAR Productions’ popular series in San Francisco, Drag Queen Story Hour captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models, as they read stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. Today’s story hour celebrates the release of Sea Girl, the third volume in Feminist Press’s four-volume reissue of classic feminist children's tales. The folktales collected in Sea Girl upend any notion that women are doomed to be sentimental, meek, or submissive. In these classic tales, heroines unflinchingly wade monstrous rivers, escape ogres' nests, and outsmart desperate sharks and hungry tigers. And while defending their families and villages, they always determine their own fate. Join us for a one-of-a-kind story time! Ages 3 to 12.
