The public library in Franklin is hosting two days of haunting teen events exploring monsters and the paranormal.
The Haunted North Carolina & Ghost Story Workshop will explore “The Brown Mountain Lights” that have been spotted for hundreds of years in Western North Carolina from 3:30 to 5 p.m. July 11. The group will explore what these lights could be and watch footage of the mysterious lights while they hear other ghost stores from N.C. Participants can also receive tips on how to write a ghost story.
The following evening from 5:30 to 8 p.m. teens will learn how to apply monster makeup. During America’s Next Top Monster, participants will get a makeover from professional make-up artist, Mary Bennett. She will transform faces into the monster of their choosing such as zombies, vampires, ghosts, aliens, or a made-up monster. Once their faces are painted, participants can strut their stuff down a runway in a monstrous fashion show that will be judged.
