Eerie myths and legends of Connecticut, a program planned in the spirit of Halloween, will take place Monday at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library.

The free presentation is set for 6 p.m. at the library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road.

Robert Nelson will explore “Eerie Connecticut” events such as the colonial-era witch trials in Fairfield; the ghostly “White Lady” of Easton and Monroe, and Dudleytown, known to some as the “most haunted place on Earth,” according to library publicity.

Nelson holds an MFA degree in writing from Goddard College in Vermont, and has created and taught classes at Yale’s English language Institute.

Advance registration is required because of limited space.
