Dread, deception, death and dismemberment are the ingredients of Kentucky tales that have fed nightmares for generations. McCracken County Public Library presents Feeding Nightmares with storyteller Mary Hamilton!
Storyteller Mary Hamilton will share sample stories and reveal who told them, who collected them and why she added them to her repertoire and published them in her book, Kentucky Folktales: Revealing Stories, Truths, and Outright Lies.
Kentucky Folktales: Revealing Stories, Truths, and Outright Lies, a collection of twenty-six tales, was published by University Press of Kentucky in 2012.
