Tales of Bloody Breathitt

Thursday, October 04, 2018 - 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

McCracken County Public Library

Jerry Deaton always liked a good ghost story. They sent shivers up his spine. And they brought back moments in time when life was entirely different than what it is now. Deaton also knows that Breathitt County, along with Eastern Kentucky and the entire Appalachian region of America, is a hotbed of ghost stories. In this presentation, Deaton will share some of his stories and talk about folklore and literature from around Appalachia. Deaton is an author, filmmaker, and playwright from Frankfort, Ky. Jerry has published two books on his home county of Breathitt, including Appalachian Ghost Stories; Tales from Bloody Breathitt, and Kentucky Boy, My Life in Twenty Words.
