- Phyllis Passariello, retired Centre College anthropology professor, discusses folklore and the attributes of "trickster" characters in all cultures' folklore Sunday afternoon at the Boyle County Public Library. The discussion, "Mythic Women of our Dreams" was presented by Passariello, and director Anthony Haigh, left, in advance of the Scarlet Cup Theater's latest dramatic presentation "Mare Rider."
