AUTHOR TALK: SPOOKY TRAILS AND TALL TALES CONNECTICUT

December 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

FREE

Associate Professor of Communication at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Dr. Stephen Olbrys Gencarella will teach audience members at the Essex Library on Thursday, December 5th at 7 p.m. that there is more to Connecticut than white church steeples and town greens. In the forests and meadows surrounding these quaint, colonial towns lurk spine-chilling ghosts protecting Captain Kidd’s treasure, the abode of the Devil himself, and shadowy creatures such as the Glawackus, all awaiting the next hiker to stumble down the trail.

For years, the stories of these mysterious beings and places existed only in whispers and campfire tales, but now for the first time these legends have been collected and retold in: Spooky Trails and Tall Tales Connecticut. Alongside each of these captivating tales is the necessary route and trailhead information brave readers will need to go beyond their town lines and test their nerve. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. Dr. Gencarella is proud to support Friends of Connecticut State Parks with a portion of the royalties.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.

RSVP: 860-767-1560.
