DSCN9406
I am speaking about the Fell House and Celery Farm and reading me new ghost story tonight at 7 at the Ridgewood Public Library, followed by ghost talks in Mahwah on Wednesday night and Franklin Lakes on Thursday night.

The talks are an hour, tops, so Mets fans won't miss a pitch (but they might miss the free refreshments).

Here's the lineup:

Tuesday, Oct. 27 @7pm, Ridgewood Public Library: I'll read "The Drownling" and present a slide show and talk on Allendale's Celery Farm Natural Area and historic John Fell House. 125 N. Maple Ave., Ridgewood. ridgewoodlibrary.org

Wednesday, Oct. 28@7pm, Mahwah Public Library: I'll read "The Drownling" and present a slide show and reading of my ghost story “Phantoms of the Ramapos,” set in Mahwah, Ho-Ho-Kus and Allendale in 1938. 100 Ridge Rd, Mahwah. www.mahwahlibrary.org

 
Thursday, Oct. 29 @7pm, Franklin Lakes Public Library:  I'll read my new story and present a slide show and reading of my ghost story “Phantoms of the Ramapos.”  www.franklinlakeslibrary.org/

 


Free Celery Farm/Fell House Talk Tonight at the Fell House

1-IMG_1302Just a reminder that I am giving a free talk tonight at 7 p.m. on  Founding Father John Fell, his house, and his Swamp (the Celery Farm) at the Fell House.
 
I'll also do a special Halloween Week reading of "The Drownling," my new ghost story set in 1944 at the Fell House's fieldstone well on Halloween.

Afterward, we'll have free cookies (thanks to Edith and Gordon Wallace) popcorn (courtesy of Indiana Popcorn), and cider (courtesy of John Fell).

We'll also have free copies of "The Drownling," free Celery Farm and Fell House brochure, plus all sort of nifty Fell House/Celery Farm items for sale, including 2016 Celery Farm calendars, T-shirts, bumper ovals, and all my Celery Farm books, including "In the Presence of Nature" and "Duck Enough to Fly."

But wait, there's more: Jerry Barrack and donated some framed Celery Farm photos to benefit the Fell House, and they'll be for sale as well.

Hope to see you tonight.
