Halloween Spooktacular Stories by Kansas Citians

Kansas City, MO – First, a commentary by an Ahmad Safi, an Afghan-American, who provides a glimpse of how Halloween skipped a generation for him. Carolyn King voices a Native-American tale from the Muskogee Creek people of Oklahoma. An underworld story from Taiwanese and Buddhist culture from Jean Marie Hung. And a crying spirit from the Latino culture speaks to us through Kansas City writer Angela Cervantes.
