The King’s Daughter Who Lost Her Hair, A Puppet Show at the Austin Public Library

The King’s Daughter Who Lost Her Hair is a traditional puppet show that will be performed at the Austin Public Library and is presented by Literature LIVE! This folktale from the Akamba people of East Africa tells the story of a vain princess. Her refusal to give even one strand of her beautiful hair to a bird for its nest costs her far more than she expects. Attend the show to find out if she learns her lesson.
