HAUNTED SALT LAKE CITY Multi-Author Event! UHBF
Join Weller's for a spooky Halloween event with the authors of HAUNTED SALT LAKE CITY! We will be welcoming all four authors: Kristen Clay, Laurie Allen, Cassie Howard-Ashton, and Nanette Watts for a presentation followed by a signing!
Uncovering ghost stories in Salt Lake City leads to a spooky mixture of legend, lore and local history. A young female apparition likes to surprise guests of the McCune Mansion by leaping from a mirror. Believed to be stationed at Fort Douglas, a Civil War vet named Clem still teases female visitors. Staff at the historic Devereaux Mansion, once a major social center, relented in their vain nightly attempts to keep the lights off and let the spirits continue their eternal party. And nuns of the Sisters of the Holy Cross still visit patients in the hospital they established. The guides of Story Tours’ Salt Lake City Ghost Tour reveal characters who just can’t seem to leave the valley.
