Ellen Baumler, author and interpretive historian, from the Montana Historical Society, will be at the Belgrade Community Library at 6:30 on Thursday, October 18th. History and the supernatural harmonize in a tapestry woven of ghostly encounters and things that go bump in the Big Sky night. Historian, storyteller, and award-winning author Baumler brings Montana’s historic landscapes to life with a thought-provoking journey into the darker places of Montana’s memories. Ghostly miners picking at riches deep in the earth, a spectral child that delights tourists and whispers in the walls of the historic Deer Lodge prison illustrate how the past sometimes haunts the present. Based on well researched incidents of the unexplained collected from Montanans across the state, the stories fascinate audiences of all ages.
Belgrade teens submitted creative stories to BCL’s first Spooky Story Contest. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony preceding Ellen Baumler’ presentation.
