Thurber Center Series: The Strange and Spooky World of James A. Willis

October 24, 2018 7:00 pm @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Thurber Center Series is a quarterly series featuring authors with an Ohio connection. All events take place at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Avenue, Columbus, OH 43215. Each reading is followed by a book signing.

Back by popular demand, James A. Willis will tell more spooky and strange tales about Ohio, delving into the Buckeye State’s most unusual sightings and citizens. Ghosts, monsters, UFOs, oh MY! Willis has been walking on the weird side of history for over 30 years. When not chasing after all things strange and spooky, Willis found the time to author more than a dozen books, including Ohio’s Historic Haunts: Investigating the Paranormal in the Buckeye State, Haunted Indiana, and Weird Ohio.
