Scary Stories

I just attended a wonderful reading of Washington Irving’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” It took place at the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow, where else? It was lit by candlelight only, with the narrator telling the story in a way that was fascinating, funny and spellbinding. What more could you ask for? I skipped going into the cemetery after the reading. This seems like the perfect time to catch up on some older, scary stories– not just for Halloween, but for the fall, with the dark descending on us earlier each evening. We have some books on the table in the Rand Room and have short story collections on the second floor.
