Join Professor Gabriel Schenk and storyteller Kay ben-Avraham on December 22, 2019, at 7pm ET as they share ghost stories around the fire, to while away the hours of the longest night.

The Winter Solstice is the time when the sun reaches its farthest southward point for the year. In the northern hemisphere it marks the end of the nights getting longer, and the beginning of the nights getting shorter. It is also said to be a time when the boundary between our world and the spirit world is thinnest!

Email [email protected] if you would like to share a short ghost story on the night, or suggest a story to be read out by someone else.

Kay ben-Avraham’s debut novel, The Flower of the Cedar, is available to listen to in podcast form through her website Kay also teaches AP English classes and edits professionally.

Gabriel Schenk teaches at Signum University and lives in Oxford, where he completed his doctorate in Arthurian Literature in 2014. He is currently wrestling with the second draft of a novel.
