A ghost hunter's journey into the unknown

Do you love a good ghost story? Are you drawn to the paranormal? Westlake Porter Public Library welcomes ghost hunter and author Greg Feketik on Monday, Oct. 28, from 7-8:30 p.m. Join us for “Insights into the Unknown” and hear about Greg’s ghost-hunting adventures as chronicled in his first book of the same title and his newest release, "Roads into the Unknown: A Ghost Hunter’s Journey Continues." Books will be available for purchase following the presentation.

Feketik is a native Clevelander who’s always been fascinated by the “unknown.” Greg conducted his first investigation in 1991 for a friend who believed his house was haunted, and he and his wife, Kathy, have been investigating together since 2003. They are organizers for ParPsyCon (formerly the Psychic and Paranormal Fair held at the old St. Joseph Hospital) held at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, where he is the lead investigator. Feketik is a voracious reader of all things mysterious and credits Jay Anson’s "The Amityville Horror" from 1977 for cementing his interest in ghosts, poltergeists and hauntings.

During the month of October, Westlake Porter Public Library has several scary displays featuring books and movies to get you in the Halloween spirit. More materials can be accessed via our streaming services. Download the Hoopla app and access 6,000-plus ghost-themed movies, ebooks, audiobooks and music CDs!

If you enjoy international cinema, the Kanopy app also features a selection of movies, both creative and documentaries, on the topic of ghosts and paranormal. And for those who prefer a more traditional mystery, the Acorn TV app features many BBC and Acorn TV originals including great series like "Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries," "Midsomer Murders" and classics like Agatha Christie and Poirot. Stop by the Ask Us desk and we’d be happy to help you track down a title or assist you with our many free streaming services.

“Insights into the Unknown” is a free event but space is limited so please register by calling 440-871-2600 or go online to our event calendar at westlakelibrary.org/events.
