John S. Case is a local author best known as ‘The Storyteller’ for his monthly short-stories in Slidell Magazine. His Southern Mississippi upbringing included characters of all sorts and the stories told by them.
Their flair for storytelling influenced him greatly and John began a life-long fascination with finding the hidden stories of the past. “I don’t write about living people,” is the statement you’ll hear from John again and again. “The best stories are found in the graveyards.”
Although not from Slidell, John has spent most of his life here, researching and documenting the history of our more colorful citizens. On his cemetery tours, he regales his listeners with quirky historical facts and the behind-the-scenes stories of everyone - from our city’s founders to our most famous Madame, and all kinds of characters in between.
The tours take place in Greenwood Cemetery in Slidell’s beautiful and historic Olde Towne section. The tours are Tuesdays through Thursdays between 12 noon and 1pm and last about 45 minutes. Tours are free of charge, and are available for five or more people (special arrangements can be made with John for larger groups and alternative times). To schedule your group’s cemetery tour, contact John directly at (985) 707-8727.
