Mediums, Magicians, and the Ouija Board: A Spiritualist History of Baltimore
October 26 , 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$5
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Do spirits return, and can we communicate with the dead? Baltimore’s Spiritualists thought so, but magicians worked to disprove them. Learn about spirit mediums, the Spiritualist origins of the Ouija board, and Baltimore’s group of amateur magicians, the Demons Club from librarian Julie Saylor of the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
