[Book Review] HAUNTED MEMPHIS by Laura Cunningham

Nonfiction/Memphis History

Wayne Dowdy reviews HAUNTED MEMPHIS by Laura Cunningham (History Press, 2009)

As Halloween approaches, have you ever wondered if ghosts and goblins have haunted the streets of Memphis? If so, then you need look no further than Haunted Memphis by Laura Cunningham. Taken from sources housed in the Memphis and Shelby County Room, Haunted Memphis tells such fascinating stories as the ghost Pink Lizzie, the strange occurrences at the historic Mallory-Neely House, the haunting of Libertyland, and a history of St. Paul’s Spiritual Temple, known to most Memphians as Voodoo Village.

Haunted Memphis does more than simply tell spine-tingling ghost stories, it also provides readers with a fun overview of the history of Memphis. So, for thrilling tales of the Bluff City’s past, be sure to pick up a copy of Haunted Memphis at your library today.
