Spirits and Wine
6:00 pm, Tuesday, October 29: Spirits and Wine

Join Susan Newhof at the Lakeshore Museum Center, 430 West Clay Ave, as she tells about spending 12 years writing a mystery with a ghost in it, inspired by things that were happening in her own home. Her book, Spirits and Wine, was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2011.
"A graceful, elegantly told ghost story that is at times frightening, at times heartwarming, often quite funny, and always an engrossing and fascinating read."
---Rodney Vaccaro, Emmy Award–winning Hollywood screenwriter and producer

"I started Friday night and got up Saturday morning with a desire to get back to it to finish. In my experience, if I wake up and the first thing on my mind is getting back to a book, it's a good book."
---Bryan Uecker, co-owner of The Book Nook & Java Shop, Montague, Michigan

"Scare up a good glass of wine and settle in for a great read! Susan Newhof's Spirits & Wine takes the reader on an unforgettably haunting journey."
—Catherine Behrendt, Host, Take Five & Company, WZZM 13, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Jocelyn Shaw, the librarian at Hackley Public Library who schedules programs said, “We like to support local authors (Susan is from Montague), and are very excited to have her this close to Halloween.”

Susan encourages audience members to share their ghost stories after the program.

Due to ongoing construction at Hackley Public Library, the Lakeshore Museum Center has graciously allowed us to hold the program in their building.
