Meet The Author – Maxim Furek
July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The Luzerne County Historical Society will host a presentation and book signing about the new book, Coal Region Hoodoo, by author and rock journalist Maxim W. Furek on Sunday, July 16th, from 2-4pm at the Nathan Denison House, 35 Dennison, Street, Forty-Fort, PA.
With Coal Region Hoodoo, Maxim W. Furek continues his exploration of high strangeness inside the Pennsylvania wormhole that gave birth to The Night of the Living Dead, The Blob, and The Philadelphia Experiment. His journey takes us beyond the netherworlds of Centralia, Sheppton, Chestnut Ridge, and The Pennhurst Asylum. It looks into the eyes of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren and the twisted souls of serial killer Gary Heidnik and con artist Richard Sharpe Shaver while exploring the preternatural secrets of Bigfoot, cryptids, Kecksburg, The Smurl Haunting, Pennsylvania Dutch Powwowing, and Roman Catholic Mysticism.
Furek also wrote, Somebody Else’s Dream: Dakota, The Buoys, & “Timothy.”, and Sheppton: The Myth, Miracle, & Music. The program is free and open to the public. Copies of the book will be available for sale. For additional information call (570) 823-6244 Ext. 3, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
