Bevevino Library hosting free paranormal program on Oct. 25

Ghosts, demons and poltergeists will be among the topics when a paranormal investigator discusses the study of things unexplained and bizarre during the program, “‘Truth in Evidence’ with Christopher Pike,” at the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library on the upper campus of Misericordia University on Thursday, Oct. 25 from 6-8 p.m.

The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Bevevino Library. It will feature Christopher Pike, chief investigator for Phenomenon and Paranormal Investigations (PPI), based in Bradford County, Pa. Pike established PPI in 2008 after personally experiencing two paranormal occurrences. PPI’s team of investigators uses scientific equipment to investigate hauntings and other unexplained activity in private houses and places such as cemeteries, parks and battlefields where unusual happenings have been reported. Pike will discuss his team’s “truth in evidence’’ scientific approach and the use of equipment, including cameras, recorders, electromagnetic field meters and microphones, to determine paranormal behavior.

PPI investigations of hauntings are done free of charge and the group’s hope is to broaden the public’s awareness and understanding of the paranormal. The team has conducted more than 30 investigations across the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania and the Southern Tier of New York State.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held in the Catherine Evans McGowan Room on the third floor of the Bevevino Library. For additional information, please contact Sue Lazur at (570) 674-6225 or
