Ghost Stories. We’ve all heard them. Here is a small literary sampling of the genre from some of our best storytellers. Join the discussion as we try to unravel these tales, tease out their message, try on the authors’ rendition of a haunting presence, a lingering grief, a puzzle to be examined. What do the author’s speculations teach us about being human? These stories are contemporary takes of a time-honored tradition. 4 SESSIONS
