“Happily Ever After” Birthday

IMG_3392The folk tales collected by the Grimm brothers in nineteenth-century Germany are still culturally influential. Their work also helped define scholarship in folklore throughout the world, and proved the importance of oral traditions.

In honor of Jakob Grimm’s birthday on January 4th, Library Assistant David Rudny Winn has put together a display of our books on folk tales and folklore, including collections, analysis, and the relatively new categories of urban legends and media memes. You can check any of these books out.
