Paranormal researcher Chad Lewis will give a presentation on Bizarre Burial Beliefs on Saturday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the library’s community meeting rooms.
This presentation will take a visual journey back to the days of cemetery bells, receiving vaults, and funerals that took place in your own parlor. Lewis will explore gruesome tales of being buried alive and discuss the many precautions that our grandparents took to ensure that their loved one would not come back from the grave to torment them–when we factor in world-wide beliefs, things become and more surreal.
