Learn what life as a ghost investigator is like

01/13/2013 8:00 AM |

North Forkers will have a chance to hear one of Long Island’s most knowledgable ghost hunters this afternoon when author Kerriann Flanagan Brosky comes to the Cutchogue-New Suffolk Library to discuss the ghosts of the North Fork.

Ms. Brosky, who has written five non-fiction books of Long Island history (some about ghosts, and some not), will also share sections of her recently released first novel, “The Medal.”

“The Medal” is the story of a Northport bakery owner in her late 20s, who is taking care of her ailing father when she becomes involved with the legend of Padre Pio, an Italian saint who was known for his healing abilities and for bearing the stigmata of Christ on his hands.

The lecture begins at 2 p.m.

“My main discussion will be the ghosts of Long Island, what it’s like being a ghost investigator and my research as a historian,” said Ms. Brosky, a Huntington resident who was writing about Huntington history when she met clairaudient medium Joe Giaquinto, who introduced her to the world of ghost hunting.

“People say to me, ‘you don’t look like a ghost investigator. You look like a soccer mom,’ ” she said. “What I do has a lot to do with local history.”

Ms. Brosky will discuss the Wickham murders of 1856, the haunting of the Jamesport Manor Inn and other ghost tales from nearby.

“The North Fork is a hot spot. So is the whole East End,” she said. “Every place has ghosts, but there tend to be more in places that have their history intact.”

  • I¡¯m impressed, I must say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that¡¯s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I’m very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing relating to this.

  • Great site, continue the good work!

  • Interesting article. It is unfortunate that over the last one decade, the travel industry has had to deal with terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as first ever entire global economic downturn. Through it all the industry has really proven to be effective, resilient and dynamic, acquiring new ways to deal with hardship. There are generally fresh issues and the possiblility to which the business must again adapt and reply.

  • zCtCxT Enjoyed every bit of your blog post.Really looking forward to read more. Fantastic.

  • Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back and aid others like you helped me.

  • I have discovered that smart real estate agents everywhere are starting to warm up to FSBO Promoting. They are noticing that it’s more than merely placing a sign in the front yard. It’s really about building connections with these suppliers who later will become buyers. So, when you give your time and energy to assisting these suppliers go it alone — the “Law regarding Reciprocity” kicks in. Great blog post.
