Please join us for a Paranormal Victorian Holiday Event celebrating the publication of The Morris-Jumel Mansion Anthology of Fantasy and Paranormal Fiction, at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, 65 Jumel Terrace (C train to 163rd Street in Washington Heights). This press event is open to the public, and free for all. Guests will be given an overview of paranormal activity at the Mansion, served hot spiced wine and cider, and stories will be read from the collection. Holiday singing will close the evening’s festivities. Victorian attire is encouraged, but not required. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
The anthology features 14 tales set in the Morris-Jumel Mansion, Manhattan’s oldest house, which quartered 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 Anthology‘s tales are ghost stories, science fiction, mystery, romance, erotica, time travel, visions of the afterlife, and paranormal fantasy.Buy tickets/get more info now
