On August 18th, local author Randy Overbeck will address a Lunch & Learn crowd. Overbeck is a Lebanon resident and former school administrator in the Lebanon City School and Xenia Communities Schools districts. An accomplished writer, he has been published in academia and in the popular press. Randy is a member of the Mystery Writers of America. His first novel, Leave No Child Behind, won the 2011 Silver Award for Thriller of the Year from ReadersFavorite.com. His second novel, Blood on the Chesapeake, has been described as “a bit of romance, a lot of mystery, and a good deal of old-fashioned ghost whispering.” It was released in 2019, and is the first in a new series called the "HAUNTED SHORES MYSTERIES." In this talk Randy will discuss some of the research into the spirit world that went into Blood on the Chesapeake and Crimson at Cape May, including intriguing reports on real ghosts, some common beliefs and misconceptions about “the spirit world” and even some controversial photos and a video of actual ghost hauntings.
Various staff and volunteer writers.
