Marilyn A. Hudson in Enid, Ok . Dec.3 for "First Friday"




Historic Enid in north central Oklahoma has been busy revitalizing their downtown since 2000. As a result, they have a wonderful community event they call "First Friday". Businesses and community unite to light up the heart of the town.




On Dec. 3, 2010 at around 6 p.m. in one of the stores fronting the square, storyteller and author Marilyn A. Hudson will be on hand to share some stories for children twelve and under. The stories will be historic, seasonal, and great fun!




Hudson has been sharing stories for many years, and in fact got started in storytelling while working for Enid Public Schools "way back when"... Since then, Hudson has appeared at numerous venues across the state. She has shared tales at the historic Overholser, the Lawton community Theater, the OKC Arts Festival, Wintertales, and in schools and libraries. She is a member of the National Storytelling Network, the Oklahoma Territory Tellers, the Oklahoma Association of Storytellers, Oklahoma Presenters and Performers, and the Organization of American Historians.

2ND ANNUAL STORY AND TOUR FADES INTO HISTORY

Oklahoma storyteller Marilyn A. Hudson, aka "The Ghost Teller", gazes at the historic 1903 Oklahoma City Overholser Mansion (NW 15th and Hudson).
The 2nd Annual fund raising "Spooky Stories & Twilight Tour" concluded Friday night after three evenings of entertainment and historic tours. Approximately ninety people, many first time visitors, were introduced to the mansion and its history after enjoying tales from "The Ghost Teller."
"Marvelous!", "That was awesome!" "Well done!" "I've got chills!" were heard after each performance as storyteller Hudson, donning a slight Victorian-Steampunk attire, shared two sessions of tales each night perched on an antique chair in the carriage house. Sometimes the aura of spookiness continued as they would tour the mansion some repute it is itself haunted by previous occupants.
"Well, I just think she is lovely!" Hudson said with a laugh when this was mentioned to her. "That may be because I am already haunted - by history."
