A campfire favourite returns! In Newfoundland and Labrador, the fairies still exist, and everyone from Adam and Eve to Aunt Sadie Currie has a tale to tell. Join Newfoundland folklorist and storyteller Dale Jarvis for an exploration of the magical and at times eerie realms of the Other People, with stories of the fairy folk from Newfoundland, Ireland, and beyond. Be warned, however! These fairies are not of the gossamer-winged, pixies-at-the-end-of-the-garden variety. These are the unpredictable, quick to anger, child-snatching fairies of legend. Put some bread in your pockets, tune in with a friend, and Dale promises to see you off home at the end, safe and sound.
