Ghostland

Mar 31, 2017

 

Friday, we’re taking a haunted tour of America with writer Colin Dickey. Don’t worry though, we won’t try to convince you that ghosts or the paranormal are necessarily real. Dickey’s new book explores the bigger cultural questions behind these tales. Traveling to haunted mansions, brothels, industrial ruins, parks, and more, he asks why we tell these stories and how they help us make sense of our world. Dickey joins us to talk about what he calls “an American history in haunted places.” (Rebroadcast)

Colin Dickey is a cultural historian and writer. His work has appeared in The Paris Review and The New Inquiry among many others. His book is called Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places [Indiebound|Amazon|Audible]
