The Jackson County Public Library is hosting Gregg Clark and his Where the Shadows Walk: Local Historical Ghost Stories presentation on Thursday, Oct. 30, at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room. Parents can bring their kids, who can attend the children's Halloween Party during the presentation.

Clark will regale the audience with local ghost stories, the history of those stories, and some physical and visual evidence of those stories. He will end the presentation with a Q&A from the audience.

Clark, a Franklin, North Carolina native, has been fascinated by the world of the paranormal and the rich history such anomalies accompany since he was old enough to sit on laps and listen to tales of wandering spirits, headless soldiers and growls in the night.


Update: Due to NC ABC regulations, there will not be a beer tasting tent available.

“Hiker Jam Octoberfest” is on tap Saturday, Oct. 25, 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. in Cashiers, N.C.
