Join the Friends of the Bernardsville Public Library at The Bernards Inn for dinner with L’Aura Hladik, author of “Ghosthunting New Jersey” and an upcoming book “The Dead End Zone: Sports’ Ghosts, Legends, & Haunted Tales.” Ms. Hladik has been officially ghost hunting since 1993 and founded the NJ Ghost Hunters Society in 1998, which to date is the largest paranormal investigating organization in New Jersey. As a paranormal investigator, she has stayed at the famously haunted Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA. Other ghost hunting explorations have taken her to Chicago, Savannah, and New Orleans. Internationally, she’s investigated several Irish haunted castles, most notably Leap Castle (County Offaly, Ireland).
Join us for a spooktacular evening with a book signing, ghost stories, dancing, 50/50 and a silent auction. Tickets include hors d’oeuvres, steak, pasta and dessert. Proceeds benefit library programs. Attendees must be 18 or older. Watch this space in September for instructions on purchasing tickets.Read more...
