Have you ever wanted to return to your childhood? Wandering Aesthetic’s “B4 Bed: Stories for Adults” will enable residents to return to the carefree excitement and the wide-eyed curiosity of their childhoods Monday, Sep. 18, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Firestone Park Branch Library, 1486 Aster Ave.
At the free event, storyteller Kyle Jozsa will read “The Copy-Cat,” by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, offering one hour’s worth of entertainment, and an enjoyable way for attendees to taste the sweetness of childhood and escape from the bustling and boring everyday life.
“The Copy-Cat” is a realistic look into the post-Civil War New England life of a group of shool-age children. It tells the story of Amelia, who resorts to copying a fellow student while in the midst of her own journey to self-discovery. A typical strength of Freeman, the story focuses on the psychology of the characters, especially the adults.
Jozsa, from Wandering Aesthetics, is a seasoned performer who delivers stories with passion, humor and artistic narration. Attendees are encouraged to bring sewing, knitting or crocheting projects, coloring books or other handheld fidget toys to enjoy as Jozsa takes them on a tale of boys, girls and personal discovery.
