Paranormal Activity Returns to the Library on October 21

Just in time for the Halloween season, the Library is bringing back its popular paranormal programming.

On Wed., Oct. 21, at 6:30 p.m., Tim Weisberg, host and executive producer of "Spooky Southcoast," one of the world's most popular paranormal talk radio shows, will appear at the library to give a multimedia presentation on, "Ghosts of the Southcoast." The presentation will feature video, photographic, and audio evidence collected during his years of paranormal research and exploration.

From the spirits of British loyalists in Wareham's Fearing Tavern to the ghastly goings-on at the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Fall River, this talk will examine some of the Southcoast's most infamous ghost stories. It also will take an in-depth look at the region's history and how it relates to its haunts, including a discussion on King Philip's War.

Weisberg will bring his paranormal investigative equipment with him and even take attendees on a mini-ghost hunt of the library! Maybe he'll finally lay those rumors to rest about its being haunted.

Weisberg works on "Ghost Stalkers" and "Ghost Asylum," both airing on the Destination America television network, and is the author of Ghosts of the SouthCoast and Haunted Objects: Stories of Ghosts on Your Shelf. In addition, he's been featured on paranormal television programs airing on the Travel Channel, PBS, and the History Channel.

He co-owns a paranormal events company called Legend Trips with one of our Library patrons' favorite presenters Jeff Belanger. A sports writer by trade, Weisberg also covers the Boston Celtics and the New England Patriots for the Standard-Times.
