Browser: Pine River Library to host program on India, book sale

Friends and neighbors, and most specifically my younger friends and neighbors,

Soon, very soon, comes a special presentation by our Minnesota Legacy Program in whole or part with money dedicated to preserve Minnesota's arts and cultural heritage - India!

"The seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over than 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world," according to Wikipedia.

Zaraawar Mistry and musician Greg Herriges will present a storytelling program featuring traditional Indian stories and folk tales with music and interaction with the audience. Stories, marvelous stories, of retellings of classic myths, historical stories and animal fables from India will be featured.

Join the children and immerse yourself in the culture, wildlife, food and history of India at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, at our Pine River Public Library.
