The Blanco Library is pleased to announce that local storyteller, Maggie Goodman will be kicking off our Summer Reading Program on Friday, June 6. There will be two programs that day. At 10am the younger kids will be entertained by her Texas Critter Stories. “We’re blessed in this area with a wealth of animals and all of them have such interesting stories. For instance, do you know why the buzzard’s feathers don’t fit very well? Did you know that a little spider once tricked a mountain lion? That happened right here in Blanco!” And the kids will make their own stuffed animals to take home with them.
Then at 1pm we’re having a program of Texas Ghost Stories for older, middle school aged kids and adults. “These are the scariest stories I’ve ever told. I’ve been collecting ghost stories for awhile, and I don’t bother with them unless they make the hair stand up on the back of my neck. From the pounding hooves in Palo Duro Canyon to the haunted Governor’s Mansion in Austin, you’ll recognize where these stories take place and may learn a few places you’ll want to avoid. Some of you may have a story you’ve been dying to tell. Something so scary until now you thought no one would believe. We’ll be sharing and learning ways of telling a good story.”
