Menacing Michigan runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Lake Michigan Room on the third floor of the Library of Michigan and consists of two talks.
From 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. is Before They Were Dead: Researching the Living at the Library of Michigan. They used to be alive, presumably. Use Library collections to research how and where they lived in Michigan. Library staff will detail resources and methods available for those who want to know the details, fortunate and ill-fated.
From 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the Lake Michigan Room is Ghost Hunting in Michigan presented by Bradley Mikulka. Follow along with one of the oldest ghost-hunting groups in Michigan: the SouthEast Michigan Ghost Hunters Society (SEMGHS). Journey through 13 investigations of cemeteries, a comedy club, library, business, hotel, theater, private home, and an old prison. Find out what it’s like to have a ghost follow you home. Meet the spirits at the Purple Rose Theater and discover why they never left. Consider what is growling at Blood Cemetery and run with a black form seen at the Durand Union Station. If you have ever wanted to go on a ghost hunt, but found that you were too afraid, it’s time to put yourself right in the middle of some of the most haunted locations in Michigan. Read this book if you dare, but do so with the lights on!
See you soon at Mt. Clemens Public Library!
