Author to discuss haunting in Litchfield Hills

Nestled deep in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut, a 1790 farmhouse sits near the epicenter of a paranormal commotion. The family that resides there regularly encounters its own ancestors and strangers — human and non-human— who seemingly occupy the same physical space in our world while remaining in their own parallel worlds.

Author William J. Hall, of Plainville, will launch his latest book, The Haunted House Diaries: The True Story of a Quiet Connecticut Town in the Center of a Paranormal Mystery, at a book signing and book talk on Friday, Aug. 21, at 7:30 p.m., at Barnes & Noble Milford, 1375 Boston Post Road.

Hall is the author of The World’s Most Haunted House: The True Story of the Poltergeist on Lindley Street in Bridgeport.

Hall will share tidbits from the private diary of farmhouse resident Donna Fillie and notes from old friends who insisted that they didn’t deliver them. Hall writes about the variety of paranormal phenomena that led to Monroe’s infamous ghost-hunting team, Lorraine and Ed Warren, to describe the site as “Ghost Central.”

The Haunted House Diaries: The True Story of a Quiet Connecticut Town in the Center of a Paranormal Mystery will be available for purchase before the book signing. The event is part of The Edith Wheeler Memorial Library’s Book Fair fundraiser and a portion of sales will be donated to the library.
