Children in kindergarten through 5th grade will have a whole lot of Halloween fun at the Summit Public Library, on Saturday, October 20, at 2 pm. Storytellers and folksingers, Jeslyn and Ben Wheeless, will present "Halloween Hoot and Holler," with spooky tales, and songs accompanied with guitars, strum stick, and lap dulcimer.
Much of the program will come from their award-winning CD, “Hoot Owl Blues: Tales and Tunes to Conjure Up a Mood”, an American Library Association Notable Children's Recording. Stories will include "Jack and the Haunted House," "The Conjure Wives," and "Wiley and the Hairy Man," all spooky with plenty of comic relief. A favorite singalong on the CD is an original, "Grandma Myrtle's Cornbread"--mmm-mmm, good ole cornbread!
Children must be residents of Summit to attend this free program. Call the library at 908-273-0350 ext. 4 to pre-register or for more information. The Summit Free Public Library is located at 75 Maple Street. Visit the Library’s website at www.summitlibrary.org.
