Jeff Belanger Back By Popular Demand

Back by popular demand is one of the most visible and prolific paranormal researchers today, author Jeff Belanger. Belanger will be making a repeat appearance at the Middleborough Public Library to present a multi-media presentation on Friday, October 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Titled, "Ghosts and Hauntings," Belanger's new presentation will use images, audio clips and video to examine the famous, like the Tower of London and the White House, and the infamous like Amityville. There will be a question and answer session for the audience and Belanger will have autographed books available for purchase. His appearance is sponsored by the Friends of the Middleborough Public Library, and is free and open to the public. 

Belanger knows all about things that go bump in the night. For the last 15 years, he's searched the world for monsters, ghosts, and other paranormal legends that have seeped into our culture, folklore, religion, and even our history books. "We're thrilled to have Jeff Belanger back at our library, " says Director Danielle Bowker. "The paranormal is such a popular topic, and we want to offer our patrons and guests the experience of an in-depth look at ghosts and legends from a person who is world-renowned on the subject."

"I can't wait to haunt the Middleborough Public Library again," says Belanger. "We'll dim the lights, talk about the ghost experience, and see the evidence and theories regarding the paranormal. I've spoken on the topic of the supernatural all over the country-there's nothing like sharing in this discussion in person."
