The Story of Stories: The Practical Magic of Fairy Tales
The Académie Gnostique will host The Story of Stories: The Practical Magic of Fairy Tales at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 2, at 126 Baronne Street. The suggested donation is $10, and refreshments will be served in the lobby.
The event is the first of a three part investigation into the classification, origins, and magical application of well-known and esoteric fairy tales from around the world.
A discussion panel led by Aleksandr Van Beber, Jamilah Reid, and Emily Schumacher will explore oral tradition, common systems of tale classification, and their use in identifying magical formulas in familiar stories.
