Ghost Stories

Halloween isn’t over on the 31st. At 7:30pm, Monday, November 2, Annie Wilder will read from Spirits Out of Time, her collection of truly strange tales spanning generations of her sprawling yet close-knit Irish-American family.

At turns heartwarming and heart-pounding, Spirits Out of Time combines family oral history, memoir, and vintage photographs to chronicle the strange, spooky and sometimes even mystical stories of an otherwise down-to-earth Midwestern family. From her great-grandfather outsmarting the “death coach” coming for his daughter Maggie, to her great-grandmother seeing a falling star each time one of her children died, these personal vignettes illuminate the mysteries of the spirit world in ways that will touch anyone who has ever lost a loved one.
