Supernatural Lore of Southern Utah with Darren Edwards

Sep 23, 2022, 6:00 pm

The Book Bungalow is excited to host Darren Edwards, author of The Supernatural Lore of Southern Utah.

From the fanciful and revelatory to the horrifying and sorrowful, the folklore of southern Utah hints at a complex history. Whether spiritual or spooky, homegrown legends are a window to understanding local culture. Visit Grafton, Utah's most haunted ghost town. Explore what haunts Southen Utah University in Cedar City, the St. George Temple and Touquerville's "murder house." Learn about skinwalkers and the theft of Native American beliefs. Examine the numerous urban legends surrounding Route 666, "The Devil's Highway." Uncover the secrets of the Mountain Meadows Massacre and the curse of Escalante Petrified Forest. Drawing on information from more than two hundred interviews, Darren M. Edwards investigates the tales and myths that permeate and persist in Utah communities throughout red rock country.
