Paranormal Victorian Holiday Event
This event celebrates the publication of The Morris-Jumel Mansion Anthology of Fantasy and Paranormal Fiction. The evening will include readings from the anthology from award-winning fantasy writer Leanna Renee Heiber, short story writer Gina Marie Guadagnino, and the radio play “Eliza’s House.” Holiday singing will close the evening’s festivities and guests will be served hot spiced wine and cider, cheese, cookies and other holiday fare, and given an overview of paranormal activity at the mansion. Victorian attire is encouraged, but not required. The anthology features 14 tales set in the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest house, which housed General George Washington during the Battle of Harlem Heights, and was subsequently the home of the infamous Aaron Burr and his wife, Eliza Jumel, who reputedly still haunts the grounds. The tales are ghost stories, science fiction, mystery, romance, erotica, time travel, visions of the afterlife, and paranormal fantasy.
