Beth Youngblood, a teacher at Glenwood Primary School, does not just teach and encourage the children in her class to read but she also seeks to capture the attention of adult readers by sharing a ghostly tale.  Youngblood has published a book that is a compilation of local ghost lore.

The book is titled “Haunted Northwest Georgia: The Legend of the Ghost Hearse and Other Spooky Tales.” Youngblood is busy visiting area bookstores to autograph her book for those who love a scary tale.  She grew up on Little Sand Mountain, where Walker, Chattooga, and Floyd Counties meet. She’s a historian for Southern States Paranormal and enjoys both hearing and investigating ghost stories.

Youngblood recently autographed copies of her book at Dogwood Books on Broad Street in Rome.  Her next book signing will be this SaturdayMarch 11 from1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Gilliland’s Island in Lyerly, Georgia.
