Everything Old Is New Again: It’s Retellings Day!

There’s never been a better time to be a fan of retellings — from the Mahabharata to King Arthur, the Odyssey to Peter Pan, Arabian Nights to Anne Shirley, writers are exploring beloved older stories and finding ways to make them their own. Today we’re celebrating all of these different retellings, from Asian myths and the many (many!) takes on Cinderella, to the importance of retellings by queer and BIPOC authors, retold tales for kids, and then thinking about the ones we hope to see next. Because there can never be enough, as far as we’re concerned. Come join us!
