GLOBETROTTERS: Legend of Sant Jordi

Sant Jordi, also known as Saint George in English, is the beloved legend of a medieval knight who slew a fire-breathing dragon (the daughter of the king of a village he was pillaging). From the drops of blood that fell from the dragon’s wounded wing sprang a rose bush, and this is why lovers give each other roses on April 23rd, the day of St. Jordi. Join us as our invited storytellers bring the dragon and St. Jordi back to life! Organized in collaboration with the Catalan Institute of America.
