Event Details

In Kentucky Hauntings: Homespun Ghost Stories and Unexplained History, beloved storytellers Roberta Simpson Brown and Lonnie E. Brown present a thrilling collection of paranormal tales that will appeal to anyone looking for a friendly scare. Weaving together factual accounts of unexplained events, peculiar headlines, and local legends passed down from a time when most homes lacked electricity, Kentucky Hauntings combines stories with commentary on historic customs. From “telling the bees” about a death in the family, to a friendly “fool’s errand” practical joke gone horribly wrong, and from terrifying haunted houses to the lifesaving “Bathtub Ghost,” readers are transported to a world of age-old superstitions and paranormal experiences.

   Roberta Simpson Brown is a retired teacher and an acclaimed storyteller. She is the author of The Walking Trees and Other Scary Stories, Queen of the Cold-Blooded Tales, and Scared in School. Lonnie E. Brown is a musician and author of Stories You Won’t Believe.
