    Former CAC Story Tree takes root at Madisonville Branch
    Who: The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County and the
    Contemporary Arts Center
    What: The Story Tree by ArtWorks Teens with Natsuko Dyer
    Madisonville Branch Library, 4830 Whetsel Ave.
    When: Noon to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday; noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday
    Why: The CAC donated the “Story Tree” to the Library so it would continue to inspire young readers. This work celebrates the global role of storytelling. The large tree mural was inspired by the beloved children’s book author Eric Carle to act as the connection between each story. On the limbs you will find boxes that reveal the story as each piece of Plexiglas is pulled out. The teens from
    ArtWorks chose a variety of stories from different countries
    and traditions — Hansel and Gretel, The Emperor’s New Clothes, James and the Giant Peach, How the Coyote Stole Fire, The Gingerbread Man, and Urashimo Taro.
