Do you love a good ghost story?  If you do, you will really enjoy author James Willis’ presentation on Thursday, July 26 at 7:00 p.m. at the Orange Branch.  Willis’ book Weird Ohio features a collection of spooky, strange, and just-plain-weird sites. Willis traveled across the entire state, covering everything from headless motorcycle ghosts and crybaby bridges to the world’s largest cuckoo clock and buildings covered in gum.

Join us at the Orange Branch Library as he recounts some of his favorite stories.
