Just in time for Halloween, James A. Willis will give some insight into what it's like to go ghost hunting when he presents "Meet The Ghosts of Ohio" at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 18 in the Rodman Public Library Auditorium.
Willis, a nationally known paranormal researcher and author, is the founder of The Ghosts of Ohio (ghostsofohio.org). The organization, which is dedicated to investigating and researching reported hauntings in the state of Ohio, has grown to well over 35 members with divisions in Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, making it one of the oldest and most-active organizations of its kind in the state.
Willis has also authored several books, including "The Big Book of Ohio Ghost Stories," "Ohio's Historic Haunts," and "Central Ohio Legends & Lore." He has also contributed to six books in the Weird US series.
During his visit to Rodman Library, Willis will explain what it's really like to go looking for ghosts and whether or not it's at all like all of those popular reality TV shows.
He will also share some of his findings from across the state over the past 17 years, including some ghostly audio, video and photographs. If that doesn't scare those in attendance away, Willis will demonstrate some of the equipment used during his investigations and give those in the audience a chance to try the instruments on their own.
To get in on the frightful fun, patrons should register on Rodman Library's online calendar at rodmanlibrary.evanced.info/signup or call 330-821-2665, ext. 107.
