Campfire Storytime

Dawson County Library
Saturday, October 11, 2014 7:30 PM

Shivers, goose bumps, spine-tingles – and s’mores of course!  You’ll find all of these things at the second annual Campfire Concert!

Join us around the campfire in the field behind the library for good, old-fashioned jump stories, music, s’mores and lots of fun!  One of the Southeast’s best storytellers – Betty Ann Wylie – will headline the evening, joined by two of Georgia’s favorite tellers.  “We had a wonderful time at last year’s concert!” said Tracy Walker, Youth Services Specialist for the Dawson Library.  “This year Little Mountain will be joining us from 7:30-8PM with great music, and we hope everyone will join us this year for another night of fun!” Walker added, “The whole family is invited to share music and s’mores, but because our tales are of the spooky variety, we’re recommending stories for ages eight and up.”
