Adam Selzer discusses Chicago ghosts on Oct. 14


Author Adam Selzer will talk about Chicago ghosts during a Society of Midland Authors program on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at Cliff Dwellers Club, 200 S. Michigan Ave., 22nd floor, Chicago. Selzer will speak at 7 p.m. A social hour, with complimentary snacks and a cash bar, begins at 6 p.m.

PLEASE NOTE: The talk by Scott Turow, which was previously announced for this date, has been postponed until early next year.

Selzer’s books include Ghosts of Chicago, published by Llewellyn Worldwide in 2013, a critical examination of what we really know — and how we know it — about some of Chicago’s most famous ghost stories from a historian’s perspective. Selzer’s other nonfiction books include Your Neighborhood Gives Me the Creeps, Jerks in Chicago History, Fatal Drop and The Smart Aleck’s Guide to American History. He has also written young adult novels, including I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It and Play Me Backwards, “a novel for young adults who worship the devil,” published in August by Simon and Schuster.

Selzer also runs about 300 bus tours a year for Chicago Hauntings, and he writes about forgotten bits of Chicago history, myths, legends and ghost lore at the Mysterious Chicago Blog. For more information on Selzer, visit his website,
