Quote from the post:
"Anancy’s Family Reunion is the work of writer and Socamom blogger Eva Greene-Wilson, who hosted the Washington, D.C. edition of Anancyfest. Instead of retelling older stories, the book creates an original one in the Jamaican tradition. S. Y. Manu’s Six Ananse Stories collects several classic Ananse narratives, and was published here in Ghana in 1993. Together, these two books show that the Anancy/Ananse tradition includes many different interpretations, and has room for new ones too. That’s just one of the reasons why it continues to thrive."
