Bollinger Mill State Historic Site hosts Halloween storytelling Oct. 19

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, OCT. 5, 2018 – Bollinger Mill State Historic Site is hosting Halloween Storytelling Friday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. in Burfordville. This free event features professional storyteller Marilyn Kinsella.

"Storytelling is the embodiment of the wisdom, stories and experiences of my family, teachers and storytellers. When inspired, these pieces come together to create a new story or workshop. My gift to others is the use of my stories and workshop ideas to take, reshape…call it their own…and pass it along. "  --Marilyn A. Kinsella

Kinsella’s collection of stories has grown from a handful to hundreds of stories and includes personal experiences, folk tales, literary stories and historical tales. Her style has been described as "animated" and she uses "word imaging" to color enhance the story.

Please bring a lawn chair for seating. Refreshments will be provided after the storytelling.

Bollinger Mill State Historic Site is located at 113 Bollinger Mill Road in Burfordville. Take Highway 34 to Highway OO to Highway HH in Cape Girardeau County. For more information, contact the site at 573-243-4591.
