Searching for the paranormal

The Spirit Hunter and The Skeptic
A Special Halloween Presentation Featuring Sandy Arno Lyons and Robert Elmouchi

Baldwin Public Library (Birmingham) 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10
Southfield Public Library 7 to 8:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 12

Do you believe in ghosts or are you a hard core skeptic? Join author Sandy Arno Lyons and paranormal investigator Robert Elmouchi for a spooky evening of ghostly tales and a scientific look at the paranormal. Sandy will talk about her search for places in Michigan that are known to be haunted and Robert will talk about how a scientific investigation of the paranormal could change our understanding of nature and lead to new technologies.
Sandy Arno Lyons, author of Michigan's Most Haunted, A Ghostly Guide to the Great Lakes State, will talk about her search for haunted places in Michigan that are also accessible to the public. This was an important detail as Sandy wanted readers to be able to experience these places for themselves if they so desire.
After some serious snooping, Sandy was able to interview patrons, employees and owners of various Michigan hotels, restaurants and bars to get first-hand accounts of unexplained phenomenon.
Sandy will speak about her book, Michigan's Most Haunted, A Ghostly Guide to the Great Lakes State, which features more than 25 true tales from eight properties along with history, pictures and contact information. Sandy will share tales that are not embellished, but still make your skin crawl and hair stand on end.
Robert Elmouchi, scientist and founder of Paranormal Investigators Group, will be presenting his speech Why We Should Investigate the Paranormal. He will talk about how superstitions, mythologies and beliefs in the paranormal have evolved over centuries into bona fide fields of scientific research.
Alleged paranormal phenomena continue to be reported in modern times. Although most are actually the result of misperception or an overactive imagination, some mysterious phenomena worthy of an investigation are happening right here in southeast Michigan.
Robert will explain how a real scientific investigation differs from what is shown on popular paranormal investigation television shows. He'll also discuss plans for an upcoming investigation and how members of the audience can participate.
