Alan Irvine


When: Tuesday, October 28, 2014
Time: 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Presented by: Alan Irvine, Storyteller

Join us for an hour of scary ghost stories, with an emphasis on scary! Master storyteller Alan Irvine will share a variety of ghost stories, including traditional ghost stories and legends, stories adapted from literary sources, “true” ghost stories, as well as some of his original stories. A great way to prepare for All Hallows’ Eve!

Alan Irvine has performed at numerous festivals, including the Three Rivers Storytelling Festival, the Toronto Festival of Storytelling, the Smoky Mountain Storytelling Festival and many others. In addition to performing, Alan teaches workshops and classes on storytelling. In 1988, he helped found the storytelling group StorySwap. He has produced numerous storytelling shows, and was the chair of the 2006 National Storytellers Conference, held in Pittsburgh. Alan has numerous recordings, several of which have won Storytelling World and NAPPA awards. Visit to learn more about him.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear ghost stories told by a true master of the art. A cookie reception will follow the performance (to calm the nerves!). Register for this program online, at the library's circulation desk or call 724-941-9430.
