Ghostly Tales and Songs

The North Mississippi Storytellers Guild will close its Halloween season at 6 p.m. Friday by sharing ghostly tales and songs under the Bodock tree at the L.Q.C. Lamar Museum. The Telling Teens will join the tellers to showcase their tales learned in workshops offered through a grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission by master storyteller Rebecca Jernigan. The public is invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets and join the tellers and musicians for this first-ever telling under the spectral shadow of the ancient Bodock tree. (October 27, 2010)
