'Ghost Teller' At the Overholser Mansion, Oct. 27-28



Marilyn A. Hudson, aka 'The Ghost Teller', will be sharing stories during a benefit, "Scary Stories and Twilight Tours" event for the Overholser Mansion.

Stories will be at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. and after each session attendees will be given a docent tour of the historic mansion which some say is haunted. They may not be suitable for very young children.

The Overholser was constructed in 1903 and is one of the truly historic and lovely mansions of those days remaining in Oklahoma City. A lovely lady of a grand era of gowns, gaslight, and galas - the tours provide an opportunity to get in the 'spirit' of the season and support the mansion.

Marilyn A. Hudson is an author and storyteller who uses her training in research and history to bring to life true tales, literacy gems, and her own creations.
