Author Event: Seances, Levitations, and Poltergeists

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

After the Civil War, distraught Connecticut residents turned to Spiritualism to connect with lost loved ones. Daniel Dunglas of New London held his first public séance in 1851. Harriet Beecher Stowe was a believer; her sister Isabella Beecher Hooker practiced mediumship. President Lincoln and his wife invited Hartford medium Nettie Colburn Maynard to conduct secret séances at the White House. Even today, believers congregate at the Pine Grove Spiritualist Camp. Elaine Kuzmeskus investigates this dramatic, mystical history of spiritualism. Readings will be provided for a select number of attendees. Elaine Kuzmeskus, M.S., director of the New England School of Metaphysics, is the author of seven books on the occult. She has been featured on state and national TV programs. During the last 20 years, she has been a presenter at the Learning Annex in New York City, Lily Dale Assembly, and colleges throughout New England. She is a nationally recognized spiritualist medium.
