Scary Stories to Tell in the Library
Our spooky October Full Steam Ahead also has an Alabama twist! Join Miss Anna Beth for Scary Stories to Tell in the Library on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 4 p.m. She'll introduce you to the work of legendary Alabama storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham, give you a sampling of one of her "Jeffrey" ghost stories, and get a few victims (whoops, I meant volunteers!) to act out a portion of a tale. Using Windham as inspiration, you'll also write a short scary story of your own! If you want to share your tale with the group, you can. If you want to keep it to yourself, you can do that, too. This event is geared for students 8-12 years old. Sign up online or by phone (444-7830) beginning 10/08.
