GR Reads – From Xibalba to the Moon: Mayan Myths
Thursday July 9, 2020, 6:00 pm
Virtual Event | GRPL’s Facebook Page and Youtube Channel

Like the Greek gods, the Mayan deities were also stubborn, envious, angry, and liked to gossip. To learn more about Mayan myths and legends, join Carolina Quiroga for From Xibalba to the Moon, a virtual storytime for adults.  Travel to the time when the famous twin brothers Hunahpu and Xbalanque went to the Mayan underworld and played the longest game against the Lords of Xibalba. Hear the dramatic story of Ixchel–the Moon Goddess–and the men her life: Itzamná, the Sun God; Chac, the Rain God; grandfather; and vulture.
