David Krut Bookstore is pleased to present a reading by internationally acclaimed poet, journalist, community activist and human rights campaigner
Dr. Don Mattera
Please join us for a reading of The Five Magic Pebbles and Other Stories
The tales told by Mattera in The Five Magic Pebbles & Other Stories reflect the imagination that is embedded within the oral histories that have passed through generations of African families, providing rich allegorical histories of the continent. Mattera’s tales are to be enjoyed by children and adults alike, yet there remains a dark, moral undertone which reminds the audience of the sociocultural realities entwined with these lyrical myths.
