Ghost Legends of Utah with Cherie Davis
Oct 26, 2017, 7:00 pm
Join professional storyteller, Cherie Davis, as she brings to life terrifying tales of haunted locations around Utah. Young and old alike will be enthralled by Cherie’s spine tingling accounts of unexplained phenomenon. Her new book, Spooks and Saints, Intriguing Ghost Legends of Salt Lake City, Utah will be available for purchase.
Do you believe in Ghosts? How about Spirits? You do not have to believe in ghosts to enjoy a good ghost story. Spooks and Saints is a book about some of the many intriguing ghost legends that have arisen in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Well known across the globe for the "Saints" that live here, Salt Lake also is home to people of varied backgrounds as well as some "Spooks." These are their stories.
While working with StoryTours of Salt Lake City Cherie, along with StoryTours founder Kristen Clay and others, started to research the ghostly tales of Salt Lake City. Although not originally a believer in ghosts, she did believe in life after death and a spirit world. She relates a quote from Kathryn Windham, "You don't have to believe in ghosts to enjoy a good ghost story". With that, after listening to others relate their experiences as well as hearing about the eerie encounters of her friends, her mind started to accept the posibility of ghosts. She was suprised at the number of tales related to her. It seemed every year more and more people would come forward with ghost stories.
Soon there were more stories than could be shared in a tour ... or even four tours. It was decided that the best way to keep track of all the stories and to share them with others would be to publish a book. With the help of other storytellers some of the favorite stories as well as some new ghost tales have been published as Spooks and Saints.
This event is made possible with support from Utah Humanities, Weber County Library, and Weber Book Links.
