It´s Not Too Late. Unless I´m Wrong, and It Is, and We´re Doomed

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie WarCheck 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.”
Ghost Hunter's Guide to Indianapolis

IMCPL is proud to be part of this county-wide consciousness-raising effort.

    I went to a Ghost Hunters Convention this summer and met Lorri and Keri. They are very nice and I am looking forward to ther library appearance. S. Smith

    Once you’ve gotten over the horror of imminent zombie attack, it’s time to arm yourselves with The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead, also by Max Brooks.

    Not that I think zombies actually exist, mind you, but I am definitely going to the Ghost Hunters Program. You never can be too careful…spoooooky.
