UNION — On Tuesday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m., The Union Public Library will host a special Halloween presentation, “Historic Haunts of Central Jersey.” The program—to feature a mix of local history and legends, accompanied by haunting images and sounds—will be presented by writer and New Jersey resident Gordon Thomas Ward.
What ghosts roam within the historic sites and buildings of central New Jersey? How accurate are the traditional stories? Ward will present a mix of factual history and investigative reports into ghostly phenomena, featuring a combination of PowerPoint photos of investigation sites and audio clips of unexplained voices.
Ward’s program will endeavor to blend an open-minded enthusiasm with a level-headed approach that promises to inform, entertain and lead audience members to places where the past is considered to be very much alive and entwined with the present.
Gordon Thomas Ward is a writer, presenter and educator from Somerset County. A member of the paranormal investigative group Haunted New Jersey, he is the author of the 2008 book “Ghosts of Central Jersey: Historic Haunts of the Somerset Hills,” published by The History Press.
The Union Public Library is located at 1980 Morris Avenue. For further information, call the reference department at 1-908-851-5452.
