Winds whisper through trees and flowers bloom in gardens to brighten lives of heroines and villains alike in many of the classic gothic tales we love. Gardens shelter lovers and provide hidden solitude for sobs of sorrow. Gardens such as these play an important role in the telling of “The Thirteenth Tale.” Please join us for a brief film visit to a great Yorkshire garden and a look at some fantastic topiary creations from gardens in England and the U.S. Then enjoy a delightful demonstration in the art of topiary, given by special guest, Gene Gage, owner of Papa Geno’s Herb Garden in Martell, Nebraska. His wonderful rosemary herb topiary creations will be available for sale after the program with all proceeds going to benefit the Lincoln City Libraries.

Monday, October 20th — 2:30 p.m. — Book Discussion: The Cup
Discuss the book with fellow readers at this cafe at 643 S. 25th St.!

Monday, October 20th– 6:30 p.m. — Eiseley Branch — Special Program: Nightmare on Superior St.
Get ready to get scared…. No….. I mean really SCARED!!!! The best of the best of ghost stories told under the dark night sky. Teens of all ages are welcome to share the scare. “The Thirteenth Tale” is filled with hints of ghosts and hauntings and many of our favorite scary stories are based in traditional gothic tales. Tellers from Lincoln LIPS (Lincolnites Involved in Perpetuating Storytelling) and Omaha OOPS (Omaha Organization for the Purpose of Storytelling) guarantee shivers and screams. You will check under the bed when you get home……if you get home!

Don’t forget — you can participate in One Book One Lincoln online 24 hours a day. Visit the One Book Blog and leave your own comments in response to discussion topics related to The Thirteenth Tale. Or visit the Storystarters page, where a collection of b&w photos and lines from the book are waiting to inspire you to create your own short stories or autobiographical tales to share with fellow readers!
