Layne Anderson At FPL ~ Haunted Legends of Arkansas

  • Fayetteville Public Library 401 West Mountain Street Fayetteville, AR, 72701 United States (map)

On Thursday, October 22, The Haunted Hills series at FPL presents author Layne Livingston Anderson.  She will be discussing her latest book, Haunted Legends of Arkansas: Thirteen Historic Sites in the (Super)Natural State.  Experience the spooky side of Arkansas, from the Old Confederate Cemetery in Helena to the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs.  This is the history of Arkansas you have never heard before - including creeping tombstones, levitating barware, a disobedient elevator, and a riderless tricycle.  Books will be available to purchase at the event and a book signing follows the discussion.

Layne Livingston Anderson was born in Memphis and lived in New Orleans and Atlanta before settling in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.  She developed a love of travel and history at an early age.  Layne holds a B.A. from the UA with a double major in History and English Literature and a J.D. from Bowen School of Law.  By day, she works as a government lawyer.  By night, she can be found researching ghost legends or leading guided tours as "Ghostess" of haunted historic sites.  A cemetery enthusiast, she counts among her favorites Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh, Highgate Cemetery in London, and Little Rock's Mount Holly Cemetery, where she is a "property owner."
