Media Release from the Grand Marais Public Library -  July 25, 2019

Grand Marais Public Library is pleased to present Brave Girls & Wise Women with Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux on Monday, August 5, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.

Join Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux for a storytelling adventure! Hear how Tatterhood battles a band of trolls, Manka solves impossible riddles, and Vasalisa dares to knock at the witch’s door. Daring heroines reclaim fairytales as fierce, funny, and feminine. Program length is 60 minutes, intended for youth ages 7-12, but appropriate and enjoyable for teens, mixed age audiences and adults. Stories will likely be too long for kids younger than 6.  

Grand Marais’ own Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux is a storyteller, writer, actor and singer. She has worked with students and audiences of all ages since 2001 and is an international teacher and performer. Rose studied theatre at the Perpich Center for Arts Education and Northern Illinois University. She has been an instructor for the Children’s Theatre Company, Young Authors’ Conference, Concordia Language Villages, and the American Swedish Institute. She is the author of The Sock Goblin and The Marvelous Imagination of Katie Adams. View Rose’s work at:

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
