Folklorist to tell true ghost stories

Written by 

Folklorist and author Randy Russell will tell true ghost stories and read from new young adult novel at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Canton Branch Library.

Asheville-resident Russell is the Edgar-nominated author of five published novels for adults, two books of short stories about Southern ghosts, and two volumes of Southern Appalachia folklore.  

Earlier this year, Russell saw publication of his first young adult novel, Dead Rules, which received a starred Kirkus Review and was a Junior Library Guild Summer 2011 high-interest selection.

In addition, Russell is an academically trained folklorist who has collected hundreds of first-person accounts of ghost experiences from across the South.
