Ghosts! Program at Phoenixville Public Library


Just in time for Halloween, Phoenixville Public Library presents “Ghosts!: Songs, Tunes, and Spoken Word on the Supernatural” on Monday, October 29, from 7:00 to 8:45 PM.  This program for adults will be presented by internationally touring storyteller and entertainer, Judy Cook.  According to legend, ghosts come back to accuse their murderer, keep a promise, help the living, or because their loved ones’ excessive grief keeps them from resting.  These themes and others appear in the ancient ballads, concertina tunes and poems -- ranging from chilling to funny – presented by Judy Cook.

Judy hails from the Washington, DC area. She performs each year throughout the United States and Great Britain. She is recognized for her depth of understanding and storytelling ability in ballad form, for her dedication to the music, and for her willingness to do her research. Judy's two most recent CDs are Tenting Tonight: Songs of the Civil War and Lincoln’s America!

This event is Sponsored by the Friends of the Phoenixville Public Library and is free and open to the public.  Reservations are required.  For more information or to reserve a seat, call 610-933-3013 x32 or e-mail mpinto@ccls.org.  Phoenixville Public Library is located at 183 Second Avenue, Phoenixville, PA.
