Village Preservation members at the Sponsor-level and above ($500 and above) are invited for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes, in-person event. Join co-authors Leanna Renee Hieber and Andrea Janes for a paranormal expert storytelling event! Leanna and Andrea – hosts of New York’s ghostly walking tours outfit Boroughs of the Dead – are co-authors of A HAUNTED HISTORY OF INVISIBLE WOMEN: True Stories of America’s Ghosts (on-sale September 27, 2022). A Haunted History of Invisible Women…is an offbeat history of female ghosts, the stereotypes, myths, and paranormal tales that swirl around them, what their stories reveal about us, and why they haunt us.
This book talk will be recorded for broadcast to the general public in October. Members get a special, behind-the-scenes invitation and opportunity for live, in-person Q&A with the authors. Members who attend will receive a copy of this newly released book.
