Fearless Women: An Afternoon of Storytelling

Although men and boys are usually the heroes in folktales, stories of brave women and fearless girls can be found around the world. Stories of one such girl, Molly Whuppie, traveled from the British Isles to the Colonies with the Scots-Irish immigrants who settled in the Appalachian mountains.

Kristin Moyer will tell the story of Molly Whuppie and her fiddle, from the collection of The Adventures of Molly Whuppie and Other Appalachian Folktales. For the past twenty years, Kristin has been pursuing the genealogy of her Scots-Irish ancestors who moved from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to the hills and valleys of Kentucky and onto the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. Kristin thinks it is likely that her grandmother heard the Molly stories as a child. 

Presented in partnership with Vienna AAUW.  Ages 8 and up.
