Good Stories for Hard Times - The Modern Decameron
In Boccaccio's 14th century story collection, ‘the Decameron’, a group of friends hunkered down in a villa to wait out the plague. They passed the time by telling stories. Ten characters told a story each over ten days, with one person acting as story monarch for that day.  To bring some light to these similarly lurgy-ridden times, medievalist Daisy Black has co-ordinated a modern Decameron of tales. Storytellers old and new from across the world have united to share their tales over a period of ten days.   Ten days of ten stories.  A hundred messages of hope and solidarity.   The stories will be uploaded on Facebook and Youtube. Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3049501975089576/ YouTube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzUzlu6LWoTODcgfCfEm1wg/about   Like Boccaccio’s tellers, we have dutifully included breaks for Sundays and for our tellers to do their chores. Join us on the following days for an epic online storytelling festival which would make Boccaccio’s biggest fanboy, Geoffrey Chaucer, weep with awe.   The 27th, 29th, 30th, 31st of March / The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th of April   Can’t wait for us to begin?
