Craig Owens will be discussing Volume I of HAUNTED BY HISTORY: Separating the Facts and Legends of Eight Historic Hotel and Inns in Southern California.
HAUNTED BY HISTORY, Vol. 1 “is a stimulating, heavily illustrated account of the supposed hauntings of eight historic Southern California hotels. Pulling together historical photographs and original documents as well as firsthand accounts, the author attempts to verify the ghost stories associated with each inn, dissecting their origins (often in the late 19th and early 20th centuries) and recreating the ghostly encounters in glamorously staged vignette photos
