Join us for our third year exploring the links between photography, Victorian art, and occult phenomena. This year’s guests:

  • Photographer Shannon Taggart of the Morbid Anatomy Museum who will share stories and images from her 14-year project on the religion of Spiritualism and the practice of mediumship
  • PEN Award-winning historian Mitch Horowitz who will speak on the strange history of the spookiest “toy” ever made: The Ouija Board
  •  Acclaimed clairvoyant medium Paula Roberts who will describe how a properly conducted paranormal investigation is done and talk about her work as a clairvoyant counselor, psychic, and handwriting analyst for over 30 years.

The event is hosted by Paul Moakley, the museum’s caretaker and curator, who will tell the ghost story of the Alice Austen House dating back to the Revolutionary War.

RSVP is required. Please call (718) 816-4506 or email info@aliceausten.org. Seating is limited.
