LANSING, Mich. - Sept. 13, 2018 - s4story -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Haunted Lansing

Local author Jenn Carpenter will be available to sign copies of book


Hastily dubbed the new capital in 1847, Lansing overcame derision and setbacks to become a booming metropolis. Yet its rich history hides chilling legends.

Bertie Clippinger plays tricks on the unwary at the Capitol Building, where the teen accidentally fell to his death when a game went horribly wrong. One of Lansing's founding families keeps a spectral vigil over its homestead, the Turner Dodge House. Malevolent spirits, believed to be either neglected students or victims of something far more sinister, stalk the derelict Michigan School for the Blind. A witch's vengeful curse follows those who trespass on Seven Gables Road, one of the state's most haunted stretches.

Founder of Demented Mitten Tours and local author Jenn Carpenter leads readers to the dark side of the Capital City.

Highlights from the book include:
