How about a little spooky history, just in time for Halloween? Beginning with the Fox sisters in the mid-19th century, the Spiritualist movement took America by storm. Even by the early 20th century the movement continued to see popularity, though that popularity was beginning to fade. Learn how this movement manifested in St. Louis and discuss two Missouri authors who claimed to have used the Ouija board to contact spirits in order to "ghostwrite" posthumous novels. Presented by Lucas Schwartze, park/historic site specialist at the Missouri State Museum.

Adults and teens. Please register to receive a Zoom link. We will also record the presentation for later viewing on our YouTube channel.
