Pitkin, David J. New York State legends, folklore and ghost stories Performing Arts- Storytelling
My most recent book (9/1/10) contains New England Ghost stories, but I have also written two books of Saratoga County tales as well as two books of NY State ghost stories. I speak to students in an intriguing way, not scary, and ask them to think about the issues involved. It is a new way to study history, as some of the people of the past seem to return from time to time. My storytelling has been an enjoyable part of my life for a dozen years.
