JoAnn started reading and collecting fairy tales from a very early age, and loved to read her mothers and grandmothers old copies of The Grimm Brothers fairy tales, Hans Christian Anderson and any other fairy tale from around the world she could get her hands on. In High School, her German teacher introduced her to Bruno Bettelheims “The Uses of Enchantment”, a Freudian/ Jungian psychological interpretation of fairy tales, which she found fascinating. She has since gone on to collect fairy and folk tale books translated into English from Russian, Scandinavia, Africa, south and Central America, Japan and throughout Europe. She has taken classes in college as well as at Pennsic University from other lovers of the genre.
JoAnn Abbott will be sharing what different beasts mean in the stories we tell each other, & may not understand what we are telling. Love folklore? Call in with questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?
If you just want to listen (while doing other stuff on your computer), you can open a window on your computer to www.Liveparanormal.com, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.
If you want to chat, you’ll need to go to the top of the home page on the extreme right and click “Join” to set up a personal account (it’s free but takes a few moments, so you might want to do this in advance) You can ask Joann questions in the chatroom, or here, if you’ll be busy 8-9 and you can listen to the archived show for the answers.
