Hannah Nordhaus - American Ghost: A Family's Haunted Past in the Desert Southwest

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Starting with reports of flashing lights and a mysterious dark-eyed figure in a Santa Fe mansion-turned-hotel, Nordhaus, a journalist and author of The Beekeeper’s Lament, tells the real-life ghost story of her great-great grandmother. Julia Schuster Staab was born in Germany and relocated to New Mexico, where she had eight children and died in 1896, perhaps of depression. Nordhaus’s account of her family is also the story of the American West and immigration, of 19th-century women’s lives and psychics, of legends and truth. (HarperCollins)

Nordhaus will be in conversation with Florence Williams, author of Breasts.
