Thirteen years ago Melania Levitsky discovered a story in The Giving Box, a small book of folktales collected by Fred Rogers. Delighted by the story of a farmer and a shepherd who find a pot of gold nobody wants, she adapted it into a play with music and traditions from Pakistan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Iraq. It has been performed in 39 different schools and theaters since then.
“When that time ended,” she says, “the story was still very much alive in me, so I started making illustrations. I hoped to one day make it into a children’s book. Finally, here it is.”
We invite you to hear Melania read the story of The Gold in the Ground and see the art work she was inspired to make. Copies of the book will be for sale.
See you 3 o’clock Saturday, March 7th
On the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm, the Chatham Bookstore hosts a nonfiction book group focusing on current affairs, history and biography.
In March, the discussion will be generated by members reading anything by Frederick Douglass, e.g. his autobiographies, speeches, something from David Blight’s new biography – Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom.
