It’s “Fractured” Fairy Tale Friday at the Shawnee Public Library, as story time with a special twist starts at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24.
Librarians will share a favorite well-known fairy tale, and once they’ve shared the real version of the story, they then will present a “fractured” version of the same story, with some of the same idea but not quite the same result.
