Last year.....


Fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes is a Guest of Honor at the upcoming Fantasy Matters conference at the University of Minnesota, Nov. 16 - 18. Here's the info from their website:

"This conference takes the position that fantasy literature does matter, and plays an important role not only in popular culture, but also in the realm of literature itself. Neil Gaiman, author of the Sandman series of graphic novels, and Jack Zipes, noted scholar of fairy tales and folklore, will be the keynote speakers at the conference. The Name of the Wind author Patrick Rothfuss will be a featured reader during the writers' presentations." 

Pamela Dean (author of Tam Lin), Peg Kerr (author of The Wild Swans) and other contemporary fairy tale writers will also be there. Check the Fantasy Matterswebsite for more details.

    Elise seems to think that the Griffin and the minor Canon was performed 
at the Atlanta national festival in 1982, when we stayed at Emory University, 
and the Center for Puppetry Arts was just three years old.   We all must have 
been babies when we saw that production.
