     Love Lost and Found with Sara deBeer; Thursday, February 16, 2023, 6:30 p.m. In this program of folktales, characters experience love in a variety of ways. From the twists and turns of romantic love to a mother determined to save her beloved daughter, these stories invite listeners to reflect on the many meanings contained in the word “love.”
In the summer of 1978, Sara deBeer was working for a library outreach program in Albany, New York, telling stories to kids in city parks and housing projects. By the summer of 1980, she had received a fellowship from Yale to wander the west coast of Ireland and listen to traditional tellers. Throughout all the subsequent years, Sara’s great love remains telling traditional folktales from world cultures. Listeners discover the richness of each individual culture while also appreciating the universality of human experiences.
