Welcome to the spooky towns of the Finger Lakes region! Stay alert! Ghosts lurk around every corner. Even the most unexpected places might be haunted by wandering phantoms.

Can you believe that even the plywood used to build a famous old theater in Ithaca may be haunted? Pulled right from history, these ghostly tales will change the way you see the Finger Lakes, and have you sleeping with the light on!"

Jules Heller landed in New York State sometime in the last century and has been exploring the nooks and crannies of its landscapes—and legends—ever since. A graduate of Vermont College of Fine Arts, Jules has co-edited a collection of Halloween tales for young adults, and runs dozens of library programs for kids of all ages on every topic from mythology to memes. They have just moved into a hundred-year-old house in the greater Syracuse area, and are happily cohabitating with their new roommate, resident ghost Giuseppe. About the author of the adult Haunted America book from which the children’s Spooky America book was adapted: Patti Unvericht is a wife and mother of two wonderful children, and resides in Rochester, NY, with her husband Stephen Giglio. Patti is a history buff and a member of the Friends of Mount Hope. Her passions are ghosts, spirits, and things that go bump in the night, especially those in her own “backyard” of Western New York and the Finger Lakes region.
