Haunted Heartland

October 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Michael Norman, emeritus professor of journalism at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, has spent decades uncovering chilling tales from across the Midwest, including Goodhue, MN. Do you know about the ghost of Goodhue? In 1922, Tunis Parkin was the first – but surely not the last – to encounter the ghost in Goodhue Township. Michael will explore this spine-tingling tale, read from his second edition of Haunted Heartland, discuss the interest people have in ghost stories, and reflect on his research. At the conclusion of this book talk, Michael will be available to sign copies of all three of his most recent books. 

Be sure to arrive to the library early to grab your seat and a delicious, seasonal treat provided by Wisteria Twig
