Local Author Visits Greendale Elementary

An adult male sits in a chair in front of a group of children with a book in his hands.A local author, Joe Tennis, visited the Second Grade students at Greendale Elementary.  Amongst the cabinets that housed this year’s Backyard Book Fair selections, children sat listening intently to the published tales told by Mr. Tennis.   

With the strange and unusual voices of his characters, Tennis captivated his audience. Also, he shared with the children the local history behind some of his tales which he uses as starting points for some of his writings.  The Marble:  And Other Ghost Tales of Tennessee and Virginia is his latest book of 22 ghostly tales of hauntings in locations throughout Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee.
