Check out this week’s Staff Recommends. Emilie Van Sloun of the East 38th Street Library has asked us to take a hard look at World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. I don’t for a moment think that Emilie is simply jumping on the Halloween bandwagon. Yes, the candy is jumping at you off the shelves at local stores, and faked-out ghosts and witches are cackling at you from atop the display cases. But Emilie is just a good citizen, and rightly concerned about zombies.
She’s not alone. At a series of programs beginning on September 25th at the Franklin Road Library, and continuing through October at various branches, local authors Lorri Sankowsky and Keri Young will discuss their new book Ghost Hunter’s Guide to Indianapolis, which according to our calendar of events is ”the first book to combine experiences of actual ghost hunters with the ghost stories of haunted Indianapolis, complete with pictures that provide proof of the paranormal.”
IMCPL is proud to be part of this county-wide consciousness-raising effort.
