Article Title: Nashville Public Library Celebrates Community of Many Faces
Throughout Month of April
Article: Nashville Public Library is in full gear with Community of Many Faces which is the annual celebration of our multi-cultural city. Nashville has become an increasingly diverse place to live. To celebrate this trend, the library will host an array of events designed to enhance our understanding of the various cultures that make up our neighborhoods. Some of these events include The Amazing Twins: Ancient Maya Tales of the Popol Wuj, where puppets of all types illuminate the ancient Maya tales of Creation and follow the nefarious and mysterious underworld as they attempt to save themselves and all of mankind; Nashville Ballet Swan Lake is a classic ballet set to music by Tchaikovsky where a prince falls in love with a swan maiden. Only the prince can break the spell to turn her into her true form of a woman. This story time introduces children to the ballet language of pantomime, dance styles from around the world and how music can influence the story. Also, children can experience the Emmy Award Winning PBS performer Gaia, and Country Music Hall of Fame Children's singer/songwriter Joel Atkins who take children on a musical adventure into the imaginary world of Handlandia with singing, dancing, and signing that celebrate diversity. Additional programs range from Polynesian drumming to traditional Indian dances, as well as story times and crafts that highlight folktales and traditions from other cultures. Guests can also enjoy sampling international foods. Visit a library near you for a month of storytimes, special events, and activities for the whole family. All events are free.
