 What's Happening at the Library


West Virginia Ghost Stories coming to the Library!!!

7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 24, 2016

Spirits will be high at the Grant County Library when storyteller Susanna Holstein comes on October 24th to spin tales of West Virginia's best-known ghosts as well as some not as well known but equally eerie spirits.

"I find ghost stories all across West Virginia" said Holstein, who presents stories across West Virginia as Granny Sue. Headless ghosts, vengeful revenants, restless graves and unsolved murders abound in all regions of the state. "Murdered peddler tales seem to be commonplace. One of my favorite stories is from Burnt House, WV, and is the story of how the place got its name. I came upon another story quite by accident one night when I was lost somewhere in Ritchie Count. It's a haunting tale of a man trapped and buried in a tunnel. Then there is the story of the little boy who was buried three times"

People often tell family ghost stories or personal experiences to Holstein, who then researches to find out more and develop the story into a tellable tale. "I try to visit the place where the event happened, and I research historical and genealogical records for more information. It's surprising what turns up."

Holstein performs nationally as well as locally, and is a founding member of the West Virginia Storytelling Guild. Her twenty year career has included such events as the National Storytelling Conference, West Virginia's Sesquicentennial Celebration, Vandalia, Augusta Heritage Series, the Mountain State Arts and Crafts Fair, WV Book Festival, and school, library, conference and other performances.

The program will be held at the Grant County Library at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, October 24th. Please call 304-257-4122 for more information.  This program is free and open to the public.  Please join us!!!
