Come listen to a bilingual story in Japanese and English!
Bring your children to East Asian Story Time and enjoy a Kamishibai telling of "The Three Magic Charms." The story follows a young apprentice from a hilltop temple who uses three paper charms to outwit a wicked Yamanba or mountain lady.
A popular form of street theater in the 1930s and post-war Japan, Kamishibai (紙芝居) or “paper play” is a set of illustrated boards or cards that tell a story.
Co-sponsored by The Urbana Free Library and the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies at the University of Illinois. You can attend in-person or by watching a live stream of the program on Zoom. Register in advance to receive a link to watch the program online.
