Listen to These Old Bones

Join author Patti Giglio for a night of Spirits from Rochester’s past. Hear how police and newspaper reporters investigate two factories plagued with ghosts from the 19th century. Did you know that on a spring day downtown Rochester disappeared, or a dead jockey came to town to seek revenge on the horse that killed him? Listen to tales of our fine men in uniform who keep an eternal vigil over their fallen comrades, and a Rochester icon that returned to his childhood home. And is Jack the Ripper buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery?

Patti Giglio is a local author who has 5 books published on Western New York history and local ghost stories. She has a passion for history, as well as life (and death) in this beautiful world of ours. The old bones of a house have stories to tell and cemeteries have secrets to hide, she gives them a voice.
