Eric James Wolf, professional storyteller and host of the Art of Storytelling with Children Show, is available for print, radio and television interviews to defend the use of the scary stories in the Halloween tradition with children.

Scary stories and ghost stories for children have taken the place of ritual trials of adulthood for teenagers, according to Mr. Wolf. They also serve as a means for adults to warn children away from dangerous places or behavior. Ghost stories and scary stories in the Halloween tradition can be age appropriate and satisfying for families. Currently on his the Art of Storytelling shows website, he has five interviews available for easy download about the art of telling scary Halloween stories.

Eric Wolf does not condone or support horror or the graphic use of violence. "It is possible, however, by carefully working within the confines of scary stories and ghost stories for children, to leave our audience psychologically stronger and more emotionally capable of dealing with their fears or the shock of real world disasters," Mr. Wolf says.

Storyteller Eric James Wolf has performed nationally at such venues as the American Museum of Natural History; Bank Street School for Children; Barnard College; Blue Theater - Toronto, Canada; Columbia University; The Fund for the City of New York; Kings Island Amusement Park; New York City Clearwater Festival; New Jersey Liberty Science Center; and The International Performing Artists for Youth.
