NOIAW's Connecticut Region invites you and your entire household to "La Befana Takes America," a virtual family-friendly holiday celebration of Italian folklore, the power of empathy, and everyday magic too! La Befana & Friends will share the story of La Befana's ancient origins in Italy to her present-day search for the Holy Child. Join us for this journey and be inspired by La Befana's stories of how small acts made in the spirit of crazy love can make a difference! Not only will we meet the mystical La Befana but also co-creators Kate West, multimedia storyteller and author of La Befana and the Star, and Dina Gregory, a former educator turned writer and puppeteer!Kate will share with us more about La Befana & Friends' mission to transform the world one magical encounter (and cookie!) at a time, as well as her and Dina's inspiration for sharing this story.
La Befana will also join Kate and Dina for a lively Q&A discussion; wherein audience participation is highly encouraged!
