As Barack Obama enters the White House, do you think he feels a chill? Does he notice the stirring in Lincoln's bedroom? Find out what ghosts lurk inside the president's mansion when Author Jeff Belanger and local illustrator Rick Powell come to the Kellogg-Hubbard Library on Saturday, November 22 at 1pm in the East Montpelier Room. Rick has been a guest at the Dark Knight Comics Club and is the owner of Montpelier's Book Garden book store. He has the original artwork hanging up in the store, and will bring some of those works to the library. If you're a comics fan, or a fan of illustration, its cool to chat with Rick to hear what his challenges were. He told me that it wasn't easy to draw something that "wasn't there". How do you draw something transparent like a ghost. Good question. I hear Jeff Belanger is an authority on hauntings. I'm sure he'll be able to send a chill up your spine with his true accounts of ghost sighting. Come check it out!
