“A fun Fall event for the history buff , avid ghost hunter, and people with an interest for the unexplained and things that go bump in the night!

One of 16 special guests for this coming event November 4, will be Cheryl White, PhD. She is associate professor of history and philosophy at LSU-Shreveport where she has been on staff since 1998.
Dr. White will be presenting a short presentation and book signing of her new book “ A Haunted History of Louisiana Plantations” that she co-authored with W. Ryan Smith, MA.
Louisiana Plantations evoke images of grandeur and elegance. Come and learn about the dark history, tragedy and folklore of these historical Louisiana Plantations. Beyond the facade of stately homes are stories of hope and subjugation, tragedy and suff ering, shame and perseverance and war and conquest.
Other books in her repertoire include Historic Haunts of Shreveport, Wicked Shreveport,
and Confederate General Leonidas Polk: Louisiana’s Fighting Bishop.
