Sara deBeer
Under the sponsorship of the Robert C. Bates Fellowship, a Yale summer grant, Sara deBeer spent the summer of 1980 studying storytelling traditions in Ireland. She traveled along the west coast of Ireland recording oral narratives, and asking about people’s memories of hearing stories told. Incorporating these experiences and her subsequent study of a wide range of collections of Irish folktales, Sara presents programs which celebrate Irish wit, wisdom, mystery, and magic in a format which brings delight to all. Sara will present a 45 minute program of Irish folktales.
