September 11 – Dr. M. Charlotte Wolf: Enchantment and Excitement: Adventures with Schönwerth. The dual language book Original Bavarian Folktales: A Schönwerth Selection by M. Charlotte Wolf is the first English-German edition of the tales that were tirelessly collected from “ordinary folk” by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth during the 1800’s. The stories are fascinating testimonies of the beliefs and lives of people in southeastern Germany in the 1800s and before. In this lecture, Dr. Wolf will talk about Schönwerth and his work as a collector of stories as well as her personal connection to and work with these tales.

Dr. Wirtz is a Jungian Analyst from Zürich, Switzerland and author of the acclaimed book, Trauma and Beyond: the Mystery of Transformation.
