Corner House Inn Presents Haunting Ghost Stories Thursday October 30th

Haunting Ghost Stories
Kick off 27th Season of
Corner House Storytelling Dinners
On Thursday Oct. 30


The Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich kicks off its 27th consecutive season of Storytelling Dinners with a GHOST STORY GALA on Thursday, Oct. 30th. Six different storytellers will be on hand to tell their favorite spine-tingling stories!

Appearing will be: White Mtn. storytellers Ed Fayle and Joan Veilleux, central NH storytellers Lauretta Phillips and Peter Brodeur, and seacoast area storytellers Angela Klingler and Shelley Hersey.

Ed Fayle (whose interest in the spirit world has created a special connection with “Clarence” – the Corner House resident ghost) has been recognized as a favorite storyteller in Mount Washington Valley for over a decade.

Joan Veilleux, a naturalist and sometime mountain guide from Brownfield MEwill be sharing a tale about a sasquatch-like creature in the New England wilderness.

Lauretta Philips is the creator & host of “The Talking Stick”, a storytelling radio program at Colby-Sawyer College. A professional storyteller for the past two decades, her repertoire includes folk tales, legends, and some of her own very tall tales.

Peter Brodeur (aka Bearded Turtle) is best known to Corner House audiences as a teller of Native American stories. He started telling American Indian legends while working as a tour guide at the Mt. Kearsarge Indian Museum.

Annually voted by fellow “trick or treaters” as having the best “witch’s cackle,” nationally recognized storyteller Angela Klingler’s love of telling “scary stories” and haunting legends began during her years at summer camp in New Mexico and she has been honing that childhood skill professionally since 1989.

Shelley Hersey has been telling tales for over thirty years and is a member of LANES – the League for the Advancement of New England Storytellers. She is one of the core founders of The Seacoast Storytellers Guild. Scary stories are among her favorites to tell.

Each Corner House storytelling season begins the Thursday before Halloween, and continues on Thursday evenings through the end of May. Storytelling Dinners begin at 6:30 pm. The cost is $19.95 per person (plus tax and gratuity) and includes salad, entrée, glass of wine, dessert, and coffee. For reservations and more information regarding the program contact Don Brown at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich, NH. The phone number is 284-6219 and the email address is
