Reanimating University of Miami Libraries' Spectral Collections

Oct 29, 2014. 7:00 p.m.

Witness as UM’s Special Collections is transformed into a spectral wonderland as a group of ghosts, goblins, ghouls, and spirit creatures perform readings taken straight from the strange stories hidden within the mysterious and otherworldly texts of the Jackie Gleason Collection.

Our journey of the unknown will channel various accounts of the supernatural, the paranormal, the unidentified, and all things shudder-inducing, as we conjure and communicate with the collection’s mysterious subjects. Witness as the words take corporeal forms and recount to us their haunting tales.

Keep the conversation going: #SpectralCollections
