He discusses publishing his first book with his brother Daniel, an illustrator, with whom he continues to collaborate. The presentation takes a detailed look at the process of creating both picture book text and collections of stories for older readers – many based on traditional tales from world literature. The author describes the research and writing process behind his adaptations of tales from world literature, many focusing on female-centered narratives. He outlines how he assures cultural and historical accuracy, and works with illustrators to assure visual accuracy. Referencing tales from around the country and the world, he examines how these stories “open a window” on other times, places, peoples, and world views. He stresses these tales affirm the richness of individual cultures, while revealing common threads that link all human minds and hearts. Using several of his books such as The Talking Eggs, Two Bear Cubs, and Fa Mulan, the basis for the Disney film, Mulan, for which he wrote the screen adaptation, he offers insights into the art of story creation. Q&A at the end.

Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.
