Samhain (Sow-wen) marks the end of the Harvest season and the beginning of the darker half of the year. To celebrate this Irish festival, children's authors Marianne McShane and Máire Zepf have uncovered some of the most mysterious seasonal tales from Irish folklore and mythology around Samhain to share with your little ones. 

Join this hands-on, interactive children's workshop in October as our storytellers weave new life into old stories!
