Dale Jarvis' Haunted Ground Book Launch in St. John's

Dale Jarvis' Haunted Ground Book Launch in St. John's Please join us for the official launch of Haunted Ground: Ghost Stories from the Rock by Dale Jarvis on Wednesday, September 27, at 7:00 pm at Chapters (70 Kenmount Road, St. John’s).

The book will be available for purchase. The author will speak at the beginning of the event and then sign copies. There will be light refreshments.

Ghost stories are found in every corner of Newfoundland and Labrador, and no one knows them better than storyteller and folklorist Dale Jarvis. In this collection of ghostly tales, Jarvis introduces you to old legends, while exploring classic elements of local folklore such as tokens and premonitions, bad weather lights, and the Old Hag herself. In addition to historical tales, you will also come face to face with some of the province’s eeriest urban legends, from the mysterious Red Eyes of Glovertown, to the chilling west coast Webber, to the Phantom Drummer of Conception Bay North.
