The Haunting of Zelda

I wrote this story and committed it to memory for a show at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge NY, Whispering Bones, 2012. It is based on the true story of the death of my father’s infant sister and takes place in the now demolished house of my Uncle Harrison. Here I am telling it for the open access TV show, Story By Story, hosted by Kate Dudding and Joe DooLittle. A version of this story is also part of my Tina Davidson’s opera, BILLY AND ZELDA.
