Pennsylvania Mountain Folktales, Legends, and Folklore: Fact or Fancy? Author Jeffrey R. Frazier has collected Pennsylvania’s mountain folktales and legends for forty-five years, compiling them in a series of seven volumes titled Pennsylvania Fireside Tales. Since the tales often sound “far-fetched” today, the author takes on the role of an investigative reporter to explore their origins, writing in a format that the average reader can enjoy. He has also published Pennsylvania Fireside Ghost Tales – ghost tales from in and around Pennsylvania state parks and historic sites, and those stories should prove particularly appealing to lovers of both the natural and supernatural attractions Pennsylvania has to offer.

This event is open to the public. Parking for is in Area 16, directly behind Zimmerli Gymnasium, accessible off of Susquehanna Avenue.
