Food for Thought: Feed Your Nightmares

Dread, deception, death and dismemberment are the ingredients of Kentucky tales that have fed nightmares for generations.

Storyteller Mary Hamilton will share sample stories and reveal who told them, who collected them and why she added them to her repertoire and published them in her book, Kentucky Folktales: Revealing Stories, Truths, and Outright Lies.

Hamilton has been telling stories since the third grade, and began doing so professionally in 1983. A Kentucky Arts Council Teaching Artist, she trains others in the art of storytelling, and is the creator of several storytelling albums. Hamilton is a member of the Kentucky Storytelling Association and the National Storytelling Network.
