Dig Up the Dead: Storytelling by Alan Irvine

I remember it in impressions more than anything else. A chilly day in autumn with the dark settling in.  A house that had the look of one abandoned or from another age, the Renaissance, for instance. My son was nine or ten at the time and brought a friend from school.  We picked our way to a group of others waiting for eerie happenings to commence.

Suddenly, a man in a black cape appeared and told one spine-tingling tale after another, complete with gestures, complete with nuance. We were entranced. We won the opportunity to attend this ghostly storytelling with Alan Irvine but you can experience his tales about zombies, ghosts and the uneasy dead for free on Tuesday, June 18 at 6:30-7:30 PM in the Children’s Department of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Main in Oakland.

It’s part of our Danger Club series of programs. Look for other Danger Club events later this summer.
