The Stratford Lifelong Learners, a joint initiative of the Stratford Library and Stratford Senior Services, continues on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 1 p.m. with "Supernatural Stratford." The featured speaker will be historian Dave Wright.
With nearly 400 years of written history, Stratford has had its fair share of brushes with the supernatural. From demons being released from the earth during Indian Pow-wows and mermaids brushing their hair on local beaches, to objects flying through the air of their own accord during Sunday dinner and real life residents like Goody Bassett being hung for witchcraft, there is no shortage of scary stories in town. Wright will explore some of what has made Stratford a haven for ghost hunters and paranormal seekers in this lively program, special for the Halloween holiday.
“Supernatural Stratford” is free and open to the public.
The Stratford Library is located at 2203 Main Street in Stratford, Conn. For further information, phone (203) 385-4162 or visit stratfordlibrary.org.
