Get Ready For Halloween at the Winchester Public Library

Tuesday, October 6th at 7:00 PM. 

Prepare to explore the unexplained with journalist Jeff Belanger at the Winchester Public Library on Tuesday, October 6th for “A Supernatural Evening”, a program about the paranormal world.  Since 1997, Jeff Belanger has interviewed thousands of eye witnesses to paranormal occurrences.  He will be recounting stories including information from some of his books:  “Our Haunted Lives”, “Weird Massachusetts” and “The World’s Most Haunted Places”.

 This program is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Winchester Library and the Winchester Historical Society, the 6th annual collaborative event between the two organizations.  The program is free to the public, no reservations required, but is always popular so come early for a good seat to the large meeting room at the Winchester Library located at 80 Washington Street.
