Ghost Stories

Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton

When was the last time you discovered a good book through music? 
The Bookshop Band recently visited Central Library and shared songs inspired by their favorite books including the spooky Thirteen Chairs by Dave Shelton.

In, stepping further in, welcomed by the light 
Seeing the others around 
Will I make a sound? Will I know the way? 
What is it I’ve found? 
Listen to the ones, listen to the end 
Blowing a candle out 
Past the door, stand before me thirteen chairs 
I’m unprepared to tell a story, who’ll go next? 

Watch the Bookshop Band perform Thirteen Chairs.
