Library to present ‘Tales Under the Stars’ at Deering Estate

The community is invited to the Deering Estate at Cutler on Tuesday, Apr. 23, 7 p.m., for an enchanted evening of “Tales Under the Stars.”

Guests can enjoy a captivating evening of stories from around the world and a performance by Gypsy Cat Flamenco. Tales Under the Stars is presented by the Miami- Dade Public Library System in collaboration with the Deering Estate at Cutler. The event is free and open to the public.

The event is a preview of what’s in store during the Miami-Dade Library system’s 13th annual International Art of Storytelling Family Festival which will take place on Saturday, Apr. 27, 10 a.m., at the Main Library in downtown Miami.

During the past 12 years, the Miami-Dade Library has partnered with libraries from around the world as a way to explore ways in which those libraries use storytelling as a literacy tool. This year’s international exchange partner is the Bibliotecas de la Comunidad de Madrid in Madrid, Spain.
