Spooky Trails and Tall Tales

October 2 @ 6:30 pm

Stephen Olbrys Gencarella, Associate Professor at UMASS, Amherst. He holds a PhD from Indiana University in Communications, culture and Folklore.

His topic: Connecticut- a New England state with a proud history and vibrant culture. But there is more to this place than white church steeples and town greens. In forests and meadows surrounding these quaint colonial towns lurk spine-chilling ghosts protecting Captain Kidd’s treasure, the abode of the Devil himself, and shadowy creatures such as the Glawachus, all awaiting the next hiker to stumble down the trail….
Dr. Gencarella will be selling copies of his books at the event and all proceeds will go to the Friends of Harkness
