Feeding Nightmares: Horror in Kentucky Storytelling

This program was booked through the Kentucky Humanities Speakers Bureau.

Dread, deception, death, and dismemberment—such are the ingredients of Kentucky tales that have fed nightmares for generations. In this talk, professional writer and storyteller Mary Hamilton shares sample stories and reveals who told them, who collected them, and how she came to add them to her storytelling repertoire. You may also end up wondering why anyone told such creepy tales!

This program was funded in part by the Kentucky Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
