About This Event

Russian folktales - such as ‘Baba Yaga’, about a demonic woman - continue to influence Slavic life and culture. Young Adult author Sophie Anderson, whose book ‘The House On Chicken Legs’ is based on the Baba Yaga story, tiptoes into the woods with Marina Warner, author of Once Upon A Time: A Short History of Fairytale.

Edited version broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during tonight’s interval
