Profs & Pints: Wintery Fairy Tales
Profs and Pints presents: Wintery Fairy Tales, an evening among ghosts, snow queens,  and friendly bears, with Sara Cleto and Brittany Warman, former instructors at The Ohio State University and co-founders of the Carterhaugh School of Folklore and the Fantastic.

As cold winds whip through your hair, and winters chill bites your skin, there is little more inviting than a warm cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and a good fairy tale.

Join two engaging folklorists for a magical evening of favorite winter tales. You'll explore realms known only to the winds, search for a kingdom of ice, and ride a polar bear. You also might find strawberries in the snow, and perhaps encounter a ghost or two.

Winter folklore often serves the dual purpose of emphasizing the dangers of the season and offering hope and possibility in the midst of the darkness. In Hans Christian Andersens The Snow Queen, a young girl survives fierce winter magic and rescues her best friend. Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moes East of the Sun, West of the Moon features a romantic quest through ice and snow, while the Japanese stories of the Yuki Onna warn of the perils of wintery love.

Sara and Brittany will guide you through these tales and more, demonstrating the cultural power of these stories that teach hope and caution in a frozen landscape. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)
