CHRISTOPHER HEALY

WEDNESDAY, MAY 9; 7 PM @ The Greene

CHRISTOPHER HEALY will introduce his new children’s book, The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. You’ve probably never heard of Prince Liam, Prince Frederick, Prince Duncan or Prince Gustav. And do you know why? Revisionist history. These are the princes who saved Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White, and Rapunzel, respectively, and yet they were completely glossed over in the versions of their tales that became popular. Thus, you likely know them only as ‘Prince Charming.” With this new book, all that is about to change! It reads like Shrek meets Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Not only will tween readers enjoy it, their parents will too.
