The Elling Eide Research Library and Selby Public Library present “Standing Tall, Flying High”, an exhibition of traditional Chinese shadow puppetry. Using delicate
mule-skin puppets from the 19th century, characters from famous Chinese novels and myths are brought to life through the interplay of light and shadow.
