Turn The Page – Episode 46

Episode Forty Six: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: For nearly 40 years, Alvin Schwartz’ collection of scary stories has been a staple of campfires sleepovers, and on ALA list of most banned books.

Cody Meirick director of the Scary Stories documentary chatted with Sharon, Meghan and Jessikah about the legacy Schwartz (and illustrator Stephen Gammell) have cast over generations of young readers. Together we wax nostalgic on our favorite tales, illustrations and the power of folklore in literature.
