One of our regular readers at The Magic Tree – the marvelous Dubhna Rhiadra – was away for a few weeks working on a dance project in the physical realm (read more about her work with Café Reason HERE). Coming off a wonderful success with that project, she returns to us today, and in a very special programme in collaboration with Master Storyteller Bryn Taleweaver. Beginning at 1 PM SLT – the time usually scheduled for Bryn, the two will present a reading from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings.” This beloved tale will come to life as the reading begins….
Tom Bombadil was an enigmatic figure who lived throughout the history of Arda. He was known by the Elves as the one who dwelt in the valley east of the Shire. A mysterious being, Tom lived in the depths of the Old Forest, and within his domain, his power over virtually everything in it was extraordinary. Bryn and Dubhna will read for two hours and will delight us with their reading acumen. Voices are a specialty for both, and their dialects will enrich the reading. Do come join us for this reading. Bryn will be in Voice and Dubhna will be on Stream, so set your sound and come on over!
Then, at 3:00 PM SLT, we have yet more to enjoy! Another of our regular readers, the gifted writer and reader Caledonia Skytower will step to the Reader’s Throne. We all know Cale for her stellar work with Seanchai Library and elsewhere including at The Magic Tree. Today, she will continue with her second in a series of readings from “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate. The author was awarded the Newberry Medal in 2013 for this intriguing story, and Cale has a command of the reading that will have all of us in rapt attention as the story unfolds.
Ivan is a silverback gorilla who lives in a mall in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. In the story, his relationships with other animals and the storekeeper where he lives are explored. Change occurs, and it’s fascinating to follow along. Come enjoy as Caledonia brings us more this story that will capture our imaginations and touch our hearts!
