Mysterious Oklahoma Comes Alive At Edmond Library

Get that virtual campfire going.  It’s time for some scary stories — true scary stories. 

             The Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, presents author David A. Farris talking about “Mysterious Oklahoma: Eerie True Tales of the Sooner State” on Thursday, October 29, from 7:00 to 8:30pm.

“I think there must be a place in the corner of everyone’s mind,” said librarian Ronna Davis, “where we still like spooky stories.  I know David Farris likes them, and he’s very good at telling them, too.”

Farris has been documenting true mysterious events in Oklahoma since the 1990's. Two of his books, “Mysterious Oklahoma” and “More Mysterious Oklahoma,” focus on events in the supernatural realm that have taken place in our state, and they provide the starting point for his talk.

“We hope lots of people will drop by the library to begin their Halloween celebration on October 29th,” Davis added.  “David’s talk is aimed at adults, seniors, teens, and children in grades 3-6.  It’ll be spooky, but not too spooky.

“Of course, any ghosts waiting for you when you get back home are not our responsibility.”
