Landing After Hours: Ghostwriters

12/4/2019 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

Beginning with the Fox sisters in the mid-19th century, the Spiritualist movement took America by storm. Even by the early 20th century, the movement continued to see popularity, albeit declining. Lucas Schwartze, Missouri State Museum interpretive resource specialist, will describe how this movement manifested in St. Louis, and he will discuss two authors from St. Louis who claimed to have used the Ouija board to contact spirits so they could pen posthumous novels.

For 2019, the Missouri State Museum's "Museum After Hours" program, held the first Wednesday of each month, moves to Jefferson Landing State Historic Site at 100 Jefferson St. Doors to the Lohman Building will open at 6 p.m., and the program will start at 7 p.m. Convenient parking is available in the lot next to the Lohman Building.

Program Time: 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. 
First Floor, State Capitol, 201 W. Capitol, Jefferson City, MO | (573) 751-2854
