Local mother and daughter co-authors Dawn and Dellaphine Chitty graced Rosedale Library with their presence for a read-aloud.

The charm of their family folktale, Bruh Beaver, Bruh Rabbit and the Man in the Moon, brought us a brief ray of light on an otherwise gray and soggy day. The ladies shared a bit about African and African-American oral traditions, and how their own family members have attempted to pass on folktales to their children as a means for preserving these precious tales.
