Jeri Holland with Haunted Akron (March 2)
Author, local historian, and paranormal specialist Jeri Holland will be on hand to answer questions and sign copies of all three of her books: Haunted Akron, Murder & Mayhem in Akron and Summit County, and Memories of an Akron Christmas.
From family photos to important historical events about her hometown of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Jeri Holland has dedicated passion, time, knowledge and colossal effort in the pursuit of compiling and documenting the treasured past. She has joined several historical societies, including the Cuyahoga Falls Historical Society and the Summit County Historical Society, to share this past with anyone who wishes to know it.
From this love of history comes a love of paranormal history. Jeri has spent many hours studying firsthand what goes bump in the night, be it in the dark woods or run-down sanitariums and prisons. She believes that without historical context, the stories and legends of the haunted present wouldn't be nearly as fascinating or spooky. Jeri is the creator and director of the paranormal group Cuyahoga Valley Paranormal. She uses this perspective when speaking about the paranormal world on radio and television and in print, like with WNIR, 19 Action News and Cleveland Scene magazine. For those who share her passion for historical hauntings, she currently provides a variety of classes about the paranormal at the Quirk Cultural Center in Cuyahoga Falls throughout the year and delivers information through lectures at public libraries. Jeri also shares her experience of investigating eerie places by organizing community events such as haunted scavenger hunts and hikes. Imparting the fact that the world is far more mysterious than what we see and hear every day is Jeri's goal; the goose bumps aren't bad either.
