Nathan and I spent our Saturday at Annie’s Book Stop in Worcester, MA, giving presentations as part of their Hunting for Ghosts: Real or Otherwise event. I talked about the nature of the ghost story (and how to go about writing one) and Nathan discussed paranormal investigation and the occult. We had a nice turnout and met some interesting people…and it was fun to present at the same event together, because that rarely happens. Here are a few photos.
Sometimes these events are more about fun than they are about the event itself…
There’s nothing that says spooky fun can only happen in October! Nathan and I will be haunting Annie’s Book Stop in Worcester MA this Saturday, July 9, as part of its Ghostbusters, Scarifyers, and Supernatural Sleuths event.
The day will be loaded with activities beginning at 11 a.m.; it will include reading aloud of spooky stories for all ages, broadcast selections of The Scarifyers, and more. I’ll be discussing ghost stories at 3:00 and Nathan will be talking ghost hunting, the occult (and probably Extreme Paranormal) at 5:30 p.m.
Annie’s Book Stop is at 65 James Street in Worcester, MA. For more information, visit Annie’s Book Stop’s website: http://anniesbooksworcester.com/EventsCalendar.html
