2006 HAUNTED AMERICA CONFERENCE
June 22-25, 2006 -- Haunted Alton, Illinois
This 10th Annual Conference of the American Ghost Society is hosted by Troy Taylor (American Ghost Society) and Ursula Bielski (Chicago Haunts) at the History & Hauntings Book Co. --- 515 East Third Street --- Alton, Illinois (one of the most haunted small towns in America). Price: $50 per person (not including additional fees for after hour events)
This wonderful annual event is the "original ghost conference". This year's conference will feature nationally known authors and speakers on ghosts and the supernatural -- and is not only our biggest and best line-up so far but it marks the 10th anniversary of this fantastic event!
The conference will include workshops and lectures on ghosts and ghost hunting; presentations on paranormal phenomena and investigating the unknown; discussions and question and answer periods; haunted locations and the unexplained; ghost tours and investigations; overnight stays in haunted places; first-hand reports of ghosts and spirits ... and much more! As with each year, attendees will get the chance to gather information about ghosts, hauntings and the unexplained that you won't hear anywhere else; meet other ghost enthusiasts from around the country; network and compare notes with other investigators; and visit Alton, Illinois "one of the most haunted small towns in America". You don't want to miss this --- there's a reason that it's the longest running ghost conference in America!

Rosemary Ellen Guiley (Encyclopedia of Ghosts & Spirits): Presenting the "Ghosts of Angela Webb, a true account of a house that traps the doomed souls of its residents!
