Library to host ghost hunter

Greensburg — If what you "geek" happens to be ghosts, the Greensburg Public Library is offering something suitably spooky this Wednesday evening.

Curt Strutz, a full-time entertainer and persistent poltergeist pursuer, will host a "Visiting the Beyond" seminar from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Greensburg Public Library. The cost, however, appears to be nothing that could a cause a scare: The event is free and open to the community.

A press release from the library states Strutz will use a PowerPoint presentation to show off his findings at various allegedly haunted sites throughout the nation. The release lists historic battlefields, long-since deserted asylums and noted haunted residences throughout the country as places Strutz has investigated. The press release further mentions that, due to the grisly history involved with some of the locations, the show is "geared for teens and adults" and may not be appropriate for younger children. The event is said to be as interesting for history buffs as it is for fans of the paranormal.

Curt Strutz is also expected to detail some of the "ins and outs" of ghost hunting including tools, theories and more.

Strutz' own website describes the performer as a full-time entertainer and lists other shows with which the presenter is involved. Strutz also performs a comedy show as "The Bassmeister." He presents a Christmas comedy program throughout the holidays as well.

At press-time, seating for the interactive paranormal event at the library was still available. Anyone may register by calling the Greensburg Public Library at (812) 663-2826 or online at
