Event: Monash Fairy Tale Salon to Explore Fairy Tale Migrations

On Monday, June 9th, Belinda Calderone, chief organizer of the Monash Fairy Tale Salon (an academic-based fairy tale salon in Australia, inspired by the old French gatherings such as were frequented by fairy tale luminaries Charles Perrault & Countess d'Aulnoy), will be speaking at the Inaugural AFTS Conference, on the subject of how fairy tales have migrated across lands, with particular attention to those that made the journey to Australia.

The talk, titled Strange Lands: The transportation of European Fairy Tales in to the Australian Landscape, will essentially be a condensed consideration of the subject that will be explored in a special half-day event, later in June with the rest of the Monash Fairy Tale Salon.

When: Sunday June 29, 2014
Where: Caulfield, VIC, Australia

Since the poster is a little small, I'll transcribe the print for you here:
As part of the Glen Elra Storytelling Festival, the Monash Fairy Tale Salon, a staff and postgraduate reading group at Monash University, will be hosting a day exploring fairy tale migrations, with a special focus on Australian tales. The four-hour event will include academic papers as well as fairy tale readings and performances. For the bold at heart, come dressed as your favorite fairy tale character and be in the running to win a prize! This free event is open to anyone who has a love of fairy tales.
Registration for Transporting Tales, is now open. To register, just RSVP to arts-fairytale AT monash DOT edu and they will put you on the list.

In case you missed it, the event is open to ANYONE who loves fairy tales and is FREE! (It would also help if you lived in Victoria, Australia.)

I sincerely wish I could be there and will watch for any reports of the event that I can share with you.

(I need to find an LA-based fairy tale salon stat!)
