"Historic Haunts of Long Island; Ghosts and Legends from the Gold Coast to Montauk Point"

After the success of the Ghosts of Long Island books, Long Island’s haunted past once again comes alive, in award-winning author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky’s latest book Historic Haunts of Long Island; Ghosts and Legends from the Gold Coast to Montauk Point. Ms. Brosky will discuss fascinating new places she has researched and investigated with medium and paranormal investigator Joe Giaquinto. Join her as she uncovers Long Island’s history and ghost tales. Book signing to follow.

Take a ghostly journey through Long Island’s history, from Native American legends and beyond. Ghosts lurk the Execution Rocks Lighthouse, where Revolutionary War Patriots were brutally tortured and killed by the British during the Battle of Long Island. Popular gathering places have otherworldly tenants, like Bayport’s Grey Horse Tavern and the Cutchogue Village Green, where several old buildings – and their former inhabitants – are preserved. Long Island’s history is unearthed and preserved through its ghost stories and spirts who have made their presence known. Through extensive research, interviews and investigations, award-winning author and historian Kerriann Flanagan Brosky, alongside medium and paranormal investigator Joe Giaquinto, uncover Long Island’s eerie history.

               

The program will be held at the Islip Public Library, 71 Monell Avenue, from 7-9 p.m. and is free and open to the public.  Refreshments served.
