Event: Kalevala Runos

Is this synchronicity? I have just received an email notice about an event this weekend called Vancouver Society of Storytelling. Their link is for last year’s event and because there is no current event listing, I will enter brief details below.

The Vancouver Society of Storytelling introduces and tells the Kalevala Epic of Finland with over 30 participants from across Canada. It begins on Thursday Feb. 26th 7pm with an Introduction at The Cheesecake Etcetera Coffee House, 2133 Granville Street, Vancouver. Janet Hudgins talks with Henry Lahti about Finnish Literature and with Kira Van Deusen about shamanism and about the VSOS 3-day telling by 30 presenters of Finland’s Kalevala Epic.

Presentations continue Friday evening, February 27th, all day Saturday 28th, and half-day Sunday 29th in various locations in Burnaby. For more information contact: Vancouver Society of Storytellers. (edited much later to remove personal contact info.)
