Arts Lunch, Decameron Edition – ZOOM

March 31, 2020 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Have a favorite fairytale, tall-tale, poem, ghostly legend, or short story you want to share? Then, in the tradition of Boccaccio’s Decameron (a medieval text where, in the midst of a plague, quarantined nobles tell stories to one another to pass the time), we are hosting our own virtual story-a-thon. Dr. Jennifer Awes Freeman will briefly present on Boccaccio’s stories, and then the rest of the time we invite YOU to tell us a story, recite a poem, read us a short text, as we engage history’s most tried and true forms of entertainment in trying times.
