Beyond the Veil: Historical Ghost Stories

Sunday 31 August 2014, 4:00pm—5:00pm

The combination of the historical and the spooky can be deliciously thrilling. But why do these ingredients work so irresistibly well together? Why do ghost stories never lose their power?

BEYOND THE VEIL: Historical Ghost Stories
Presented by Academy Funeral Services

The combination of the historical and the spooky can be deliciously thrilling. But why do these ingredients work so irresistibly well together? Why do ghost stories never lose their power? To discuss such dark and mysterious matters we have Diane Setterfield, whose novels 'The Thirteenth Tale' and 'Bellman & Black' have won her worldwide acclaim, Rosetta Allen, whose first novel, 'Purgatory', based on the Otahuhu murders of 1865, has been described by Paula Morris as 'vivid and engrossing', and Coral Atkinson, whose 'Passing Through', set in Lyttelton in the 1920s, memorably explores spiritualism and the strange business of communicating with the 'other side'. They talk to Gothic expert and novelist, Liam McIlvanney.
