Hold onto your hats! These are not your mother’s versions of the childhood tales from your youth.  Murder, mayhem, abuse and mutilation are just the tip of the iceberg when we delve deeper into the stories made famous by the Brothers Grimm. Join Dr. Naima Johnston Bush as she spins the original back stories of Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the awful fate of other fairy characters. Due to tense adult situations, these are not stories you want your little ones to hear … unless you want to give them nightmares. Recommended for ages 18 and up.
