Christina Barber Speaks About Southside Ghosts to Fayette County Library on Sat.


Authored the Study Spirits of Georgia's Southern Crescent


     Soon after Coweta County author Christina Barber won a Dream Realm Award for her paranormal thriller Greystone in 2006, she was given a contract by Schiffer Publishing Company to do a study of ghost stories in the counties south of Atlanta, which are sometimes collectively referred to as the Southern Arc or the Southern Crescent.  The results of her study were published earlier this year under the title of Spirits of Georgia's Southern Crescent.


     She will be giving a talk on her study on Saturday October 11 from 1 PM to 2 PM at the Fayette County Public Library on 1821 Heritage Parkway in Fayetteville.  Here is the press release issued by the Library:
