Prelude to Halloween

Two Guild Storytellers made an appearance in Hope, Indiana, for their annual Goodies, Goblins and Ghost Stories event.
One of us sat in a dark tent where the audience shivered on hay bales and jumped when the Hairy Thing grabbed the little boy:
"What have you got those long sharp teeth for?"
The other one told on the band stand, 
where the audience helped call
 "Barney McCabe, Doodley Doo and Sue Boy"
 to defeat the witch.
It was a chilly, windy evening, but the costumed crowds enjoyed listening to some of our favorite seasonal tales.

Festival of Ghost Stories next Friday

Darkness falls on Bryan Park
in the evening chill a crowd gathers,
wrapping themselves in blankets and coats as they sip hot cider
and watch the glowing stage...
one by one, storytellers step forward
with seasonal stories...
spooky, gruesome, supernatural, even a little dark humor.
We've been gathering for over 40 years to share scary stories at the Annual Festival of Ghost Stories.

Come listen and shiver with us this year:
