Sunday, October 9, 2022 ~ 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Long Island’s history extends beyond the physical reality surrounding us into the great unknown of the spiritual realm. Deceased patrons and other visitors from the past linger at the Milleridge Inn in Jericho, one of the oldest continually operating restaurants in America. Victims of the Louis V. Place shipwreck aren’t resting so peacefully at the Lakeview Cemetery in Patchogue. Spirits move furniture, knock on doors and pace through the exhibits at the Long Island Maritime Museum. Award-winning author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky, alongside medium and paranormal investigator Joe Giaquinto, use extensive interviews, research and investigations to unveil a new collection of Long Island’s ghostly past.
On October 9, Kerriann and Joe will delight their audience with tales of their ghostly adventures which weave local history with the spiritual realm. Join them as they discuss the research and investigations behind the making of Kerriann’s newly released book. During their lecture you will see a PowerPoint presentation of the places they have visited, and listen to EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) along with fascinating Ghost Box recordings from their field investigations.
