Corrales author Benjamin Radford will be talking about and signing his new book Investigating Ghosts: The Scientific Search for Spirits at numerous events locally, nationally and internationally. Radford will be speaking about the historical, cultural, folkloric, and social aspects of ghost hunting, from the Victorian era to modern-day TV ghost hunters.
Despite widespread belief in spirits, scientific evidence for them remains elusive. No mere armchair scholar, Radford’s book is based on nearly twenty years of first-hand, science-based investigations and research. Radford’s talk and book will entertain and educate skeptics and true believers alike, separating fact from fiction about this timeless mystery.
Radford will examine scientific investigation techniques, the psychology of ghost experiences, types of evidence for ghosts, and why the TV ghost hunters often get it wrong. Radford is a folklorist, an award-winning investigator, and author of a dozen books including Scientific Paranormal Investigation; Tracking the Chupacabra; Bad Clowns; Media Mythmakers: How Journalists, Activists, and Advertisers Mislead Us; Lake Monster Mysteries: Investigating the World’s Most Elusive Creatures; Mysterious New Mexico and more.
