VIRTUAL

What is going to happen to Anansi when he leaves Jamaica for the first time and travels to Canada only to experience a powerful snowstorm? Will his tricks help him overcome the cold Canadian weather or will he have to rely on help from new friends such as Bredda Squirrel, Bredda Raccoon, and Miss Skunk? Can Anansi adjust to this new environment, or will it be too much for him to handle?
Join Anansi on his first Canadian adventure and learn the importance of making friends when we try to move to somewhere new.  This program is a great fit for classrooms and families!

This program is presented in partnership with Ujima: Black History Month & Beyond @ University of Waterloo

Featuring an original story by Dr. Clive Forrester from the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Waterloo and performance by Letna Allen-Rowe aka "Miss Letna" this program is not to be missed!
