Hickory – Come to Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Monday, October 28, at 6:00 pm for a Halloween tradition. Peggy Mainess will retell some of North Carolina’s most colorful spooky tales. From Wilmington to Cherokee, North Carolina is a treasure trove of ghostly lore. After hearing these tales, you may be a little apprehensive on dark windy nights.

Peggy Mainess is a Catawba County native who has worked in the North Carolina History & Genealogy Room for 12 years. Before that, Peggy was an administrator for Hickory Public Schools for 27 years. It is no wonder that Miss Peggy knows where all of the bodies are buried.
