(SPL Press Release, April 8, 2015)

Join us on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. as Wayne State University professor Dr. Donald Haase gives a presentation titled “Grimms’ Fairy Tales: The Real Story”.

We all know Grimms’ fairy tales – or at least we like to think we do. The stories of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, first published in 1812, are cloaked in a romantic myth that reflects our own wishful thinking about the origin of the tales but has actually little to do with reality.

Using examples from the Grimms’ manuscripts and early editions, Wayne State University Sahara ad with wineprofessor Dr. Donald Haase pulls away the curtain and reveals the truth about the Grimms’ fairy-tale collection and how the stories in it became the famous tales that we know and tell today.

The Southfield Public Library is located in the Southfield Municipal Complex, 26300 Evergreen Road.  Visit the Library’s Home Page at  For further information, please call the Guest Services Desk at (248)796-4224.
