Yule Storytelling and Booksigning with David Voyles
December 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$13.00
David Voyles will be reading from his collection “The Thirteenth Day of Christmas and Other Tales of Yuletide Horror” at Asheville Raven and Crone! You might remember David Allen Voyles as Virgil Nightshade, the storyteller/undertaker of Asheville’s only haunted hearse ghost tour, Dark Ride Tours. Voyles will also have copies of his frightening collection of tales available for purchase and will be happy to sign your copy. ($13.00 Cash/check only)
IIn The Thirteenth Day of Christmas, you’ll find a wide array of supernatural entities, from traditional ghosts to modern twists on familiar Christmas characters like Santa and Krampus. You’ll travel to a modern hotel in the Arctic Circle that’s made entirely of ice, as well as to a nineteenth century village in Bulgaria whose citizens have a unique yearly ritual with an enigmatic toymaker. There are ghostly mysteries to be solved, wicked children to be punished, haunted graveyards, possessed dolls, and even a humorous account of Santa’s visit to a haunted house on Christmas Eve.
So join us at the Raven and Crone as we turn down the lights, grab a cup of tea, and listen to some original, spine-tingling ghost stories just right for the Yuletide season. But remember, you can cry and you can pout, but one thing is for sure–you better watch out!
