Event Details

Scranton Public Library will host a presentation about the book, Coal Region Hoodoo: Paranormal Tales from Inside the Pit. Author Maxim W. Furek will conduct the event on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at 2:00 PM in the Henkelman Room, located on the 2nd floor.

With Coal Region Hoodoo, Furek continues his sociological exploration inside the Pennsylvania high strangeness 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, 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, UFOs, cryptids, The Smurl Haunting, and Roman Catholic Mysticism.

Miners claim that being trapped in the bottom of a coal mine is as close as one can ever get to being in Hell. Coal Region Hoodoo takes us even closer inside that forbidden, paranormal pit.

The program is free and open to the public. Please contact Bill Cronauer for additional information. (570) 348-3000, ext. 3016.
