What is the real story on ghosts? The answer can’t be found in Gothic novels, Hollywood movies or on TV. Bedminster author and paranormal investigator Gordon Ward believes he knows. He specializes in finding – and communicating with – beings on “the other side.” Survival of the human personality is a popular topic supported by mounting evidence. The word “ghost” is really an umbrella term that defines many types of paranormal phenomena such as apparitions and poltergeists. At 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 30 Gordon Ward will explain his views on ghosts, share his experiences investigating haunted locations, including "The Old Stone House" in Maplewood, show evidence including audio clips and photographs, and teach attendees how to conduct their own, sound investigations without costly equipment. Questions are welcome.
Gordon Ward is also a songwriter and performer and will be co-starring in a new television series about ghosts targeted to air in 2017.
