We all grew up with the story of Little Red Riding Hood:

Little Red takes a basket of goodies to her sick grandmother in the woods and instead encounters the big bad wolf. This beloved classic fairy tale is the subject of a new exciting exhibit opening on November 30th at the New Canaan Historical Society entitled: Seeing Red: Little Red Riding Hood Visits the New Canaan Historical Society. Designed to delight visitors of all ages, the exhibition will feature the collection of Peggy Rice who has spent 50 years collecting all things Little Red Riding Hood. To celebrate this extraordinary exhibition, the Society will host an evening of cocktails and merriment at the exhibition’s opening reception on November 30th. The fun begins at 6pm at the Society,which is located at 13 Oenoke Ridge Road in New Canaan. The evening will be marked with special touches. A ribbon cutting ceremony will officially open this enchanting exhibition, and guests will meet and mingle with collector Peggy Rice. Attendees will also enjoy a lecture with Catherine Orenstein, author of Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked: Sex, Morality & the Evolution of a Fairy Tale, which explores stories told about women over 500 years across multiple continents and how they shape our lives today. Tickets will go on sale beginning October 19th at a cost of $75 per person. Reservations are limited, and tickets are available by calling 203-966-1776. A portion of the ticket price will benefit the New Canaan Historical Society’s educational programming.
