Landing After Hours: Ghostwriters - A Look at Two Spiritualist Authors in Earth 20th Century St. Louis

Beginning with the Fox sisters in the mid-19th century, the Spiritualist movement took America by storm. Even by the early 20th century, the movement continued to see popularity, though that popularity was beginning to fade. Lucas Schwartze, Missouri State Museum Interpretive Resource Specialist, will describe how this movement manifested in St. Louis, and he will discuss two authors from St. Louis who claimed to have used the Ouija board to contact spirits in order to pen posthumous novels.
