Lit Chat Women in White with Elizabeth Randall at Jacksonville Public Library

Does your interest in ghosts and spirits reappear this time of year? If so, then this Lit Chat is for you. Elizabeth Randall discusses her book Women in White: The Haunting of Northeast Florida on October 21, at 1 p.m. Hear about 29 tales from four northeastern Florida counties dominated by the wispy trails of strange female spirits known as ghostly “women in white.” Click here to register.

Elizabeth Randall is also the author of Haunted St. Augustine and St. Johns County and Murder in St. Augustine: The Mysterious Death of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley.

"...Randall helps us more fully appreciate how a supernatural world of eerie lights and scary noises and wispy apparitions of "Women in White" are a lot more a part of the Florida character than we may realize. If you think alligators in swimming pools and giant exotic snakes are strange, you ain't seen nothing yet!"
-Bill Belleville, award-winning filmmaker and author of Salvaging the Real Florida
