• Haunted New England: There’s nothing quite like a New England ghost story. From Peter Rugg’s ghostly carriage ride to the haunting of the Sterling Opera House, there is a wealth of spooky tales that are told all over the northeast. Come hear the cases of some of New England’s most famous hauntings, and decide for yourself if you ought to sleep with the lights on. Local author Christine Black will be on hand to sell and sign copies of her ghostly book Whispers from the Beyond. This program, good for teens, tweens, and adults, is led by Sarah Hodge-Wetherbe, Library Associate.
