The Dark-Thirty: Southern Tales of the Supernatural by Patricia McKissack

October 28, 2008

When it is neither day nor night, when shadows lurk before darkness falls. This time, when almost anything can happen, is known as the dark thirty. You don’t want to find yourself alone during the dark thirty. For no one will believe you if you tell them what you saw. Did you actually see it? Those 30 minutes between day and night can be bewitching. It’s best to spend this eerie yet magical time with friends-sharing stories. Stories about the strange things that people have seen, stories about the supernatural. A man killed by the Klan returns to seek justice. A train that brings death if you hear its whistle. A man that can see the future sees a fiery demise for his family. The stories in this collection of spine tingling tales are inspired by African American history. They will make you shiver… They will make you wonder… And they are perfect for sharing during that time when anything can happen, during… The Dark Thirty.
