Selector: Rhonda McGinnis

November's Subject of the Month display explores the myths, legends and folklore of cultures around the world.  While the myths of the Olympian gods, the legend of King Arthur, and the fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm are at least relatively familiar to most people, there is a wealth of lesser known folktales and legends.  In every culture, folktales and legends helped to explain the world's origins and phenomena, define appropriate behavioral norms, inspire heroic deeds, and entertain listeners around campfire and hearth.
