Ghostlahoma—Where the Wind Comes Shriekin’ Down the Plain

If we’ve learned anything from watching all those ghost shows on TV, it’s that anyplace can be haunted. 

Join authors and paranormal investigators Tonya Hacker and Tammy Wilson as they discuss their book “Ghostlahoma: Over 100 Years of Oklahoma's Haunted History.”  They will be speaking at the Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, on Saturday, October 2 from 2:00-3:00p.m.  Books will be available for purchase and signing.  For information, call the library at 843-9601.

“What better way to kick off the fall season and the month of October than with some real ghost stories?” said librarian Ann Meeks.  “Autumn may mean football to many people in Oklahoma, but the citizenry of Ghostlahoma have spookier things in mind.”

Hacker and Wilson say that “even people who don’t believe in that stuff” have shared ghost stories with them that appear in the book.  It even contains the first ghost story published in the state.  Most of the stories in the book were told to the authors by the very people who experienced something strange.

The Belle Isle session is for listeners aged 10 and up.  Refreshments will be provided, so please  sign up at the reference desk.
