ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
M. Jennie Frost’s family (both sides) came to Edmonton in 1906. She discovered archaeology at age 11, studied classics at University, and taught Latin in school, university, and adult extension classes for 20 years. When she began storytelling in 1996, she leapt at the chance to interest a wider audience in the stories of ancient Greece and Rome. Storytelling also allows her to share the folk and fairy tales she’s loved since she first started reading, as well as poetry and stories from literature. Performing for adults at Fort Edmonton’s Halloween Spooktacular gave her a taste for horror stories, and meeting the epic tellers of Taylor Lake, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia further broadened her storytelling horizons. She has published prize-winning short stories and poetry, and one book, The Courtship of Hippodameia (Mellen, N.Y., 2005.) Jennie Frost has been president of both TALES Edmonton and Storytellers of Canada /Conteurs du Canada.

Sources
“I owe a deep debt of gratitude to classicist and storyteller Jane Cahill, whose book Her Kind: Stories of Women from Greek Mythology ( Broadview Press, 1995) encouraged me to look at the human characters in myth as real people acting within a society and religion very different from ours. When I start a new story, I go first to Apollodorus, The Library of Greek Mythology, Trans and Notes by Robin Hard (Oxford World Classics, 1997.)
