Our next book discussion will be on Thursday, October 20 at 7 p.m.. We will be discussing The Apparitionists by Peter Manseau.  Copies are available to borrow at the library. 
 

"Publishers Weekly" called this "A rare work of historical nonfiction that is both studious and just plain entertaining" when they named it to their Top Ten Books of 2017.

Despite the Halloween-appropriate title, this is, indeed, nonfiction.  It was written by the founder of the Smithsonian Museum of American History's Center for the Understanding of Religion in American History.  He delves into the 19th-century "spirit photography" phenomena in those early days of photography, and the circuslike fraud trial of William Mumler, whose client list included Mary Todd Lincoln..
