Julie Griffin presents Ghostly Photographs

Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014, 7:00 pm
Julie Griffin presents Ghostly Photographs;

Education/Lectures

Old Lyme - Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, 2 Library Lane, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Griffin will share her experiences of investigating the paranormal in recent years illustrated with her photographs on location.
Julie Griffin started getting involved with paranormal investigating in 2008. In early 2009 she began capturing anomalies with a digital camera and continues to get good photographic evidence. She has investigated locations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania. Gettysburg is her favorite location. Her book tells about twelve different investigations and every story has one or more "ghostly" photographs.
Her interest in the paranormal has been lifelong. Growing up in the Midwest, she lived in a house for five years that was haunted; hearing footsteps on the 2nd floor when no one was up there happened frequently. She also saw a full body apparition of a woman in the 2nd floor hallway and a small dog run under her bed.
Julie says, “I am a photographer and paranormal investigator. With the hope of capturing more evidence for the existence of the spirit world, I visit locations reported to be haunted. This has led to many intense personal experiences, so I have many stories to tell.”
"This phenomenal collection of photographs, coupled with the stories which illuminate each image, will enrich any reader's mind with deeply thought-provoking concepts. What Julie Griffin has captured on film is equally compelling and significant. It will prove to be an outstanding contribution to a supernatural conversation occurring worldwide." Quote from Andrea Perron, Author "House of Darkness House of Light"
The Library is located at 2 Library Lane, off Lyme Street in Old Lyme. Winter hours are Monday and Wednesday, 10am to 7pm; Tuesday and Thursday, 10am to 6pm; Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday, 10am to 4pm. Registration required by calling 860-434-1684 or visit www.oldlyme.lioninc.org to register online under the Events calendar.
