Ghosts of the Quad Cities Book Talk
October 23, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us on Wednesday, October 23rd at 6pm for this book talk by authors Mike McCarty and Mark McLaughlin!
Divided by state lines and the Mississippi River, the Quad Cities share a common haunted heritage. If anything, the seam that runs through the region is especially rife with spirits, from the Black Angel of Moline’s Riverside Cemetery to the spectral Confederate POWs of Arsenal Island. Of course, the city centers have their own illustrious supernatural residents–the Hanging Ghost occupies Davenport’s City Hall, while the Phantom Washwoman wanders Bettendorf’s Central Avenue. At Igor’s Bistro in Rock Island, every day is Halloween. Michael McCarty and Mark McLaughlin hunt down the haunted lore of this vibrant Midwestern community.
Mark and Michael will provide an overview of the book, share anecdotes, and answer questions. Books will be available for purchase.
