Macabre Stories of Murder and Madness
The brave and the curious are beckoned to Macabre Stories of Murder and Madness on Wednesday, October 30, at Godfrey Daniels, 7 E. 4th Street, Bethlehem, PA, from 7 to 9:30 PM. Tickets: $12.50 at the door. Reservations recommended. Light refreshments will be available for purchase. BYOB & Wine.
Embark on a journey into the frightening, fascinating world of the imagination as storytellers Charles Kiernan, Bruce Marold, Karen Maurer, and Denise McCormack spin scintillating and sticky situations in a celebration of this season’s favorite holiday: All Hallows Eve.
According to McCormack, “The scariest stories reside inside our heads. Our mission is to bring them out and expose them, give them life and light, sometimes in metaphor and sometimes in hard truth, real events, and then put them back to bed. Like all of the best stories, we want the tales to resonate with our listeners. The stories, themselves, are haunting. And we expect that the atmosphere of Godfrey Daniels will enhance that effect.”
Maurer has engaged audiences with her storytelling for more than two decades, is a member of the LVSG board , and a presenter and reviewer of books for middle grades and teens for area literature conferences and on her blog, booksnstories.blogspot.com.
Maurer’s specialties and services include professional storyteller, workshop developer and leader, program coordinator, and book reviewer.
Denise McCormack has been telling professionally for more than a decade, presents programs throughout the tri-state area, and is deeply committed to sharing the benefits of storytelling in a broad spectrum of applications from education and community to business, health, and well-being.
Among her many roles in storytelling, McCormack is a board member and active teller for and with the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild, the NJ state liaison for the National Storytelling Network, co-chair of the NJ Storytelling Festival, president of the Patchwork Storytelling Guild in Philadelphia, and an active member of various other local and national organizations wherein storytelling plays an integral role.
McCormack’s mantra: There is a story for every time and purpose under heaven. For more information: www.denisemccormack.live
