Arachne Speaks
by Kate Hovey and Blair Drawson

"Orb weavers
Weavers of tangled nets
All eight-legged ones...
Cast to the four winds
my story's thread."

The talented, rebellious teenage Arachne here tells her own story in unforgettable words. She speaks of her impoverished childhood and lonely, steadfast pursuit of excellence in a bold, passionate voice. Her unshakable belief in herself and persistent questioning of divine authority lead to a dramatic confrontation with the goddess Athena, a fateful weaving contest, and an unexpected transformation.
