6C Wednesday, September 15, 2010 UPCOMING EVENTS/SCHOOL/HEALTH Book signing scheduled The Charles Town Library will host a book signing Octo- ber 9 at 10 a.m. for local author Ann Khiel Fern. Fern's publi- cation, "Charles Town, WV - A Haunted History" was re- cently released in September in time for the city's annual ghost tour. She was inspired to research and write the book af- ter she volunteered to lead last year's highly successful tour. "After this tout, I found that I wanted to learn more about the families that shaped this town. I wanted to tell authentic, doc- umented stories while preserv- ing the dignity of those fami- lies. The book contains tales of oxer 100 restless spirits. Read- ing the book is a great way to learn about the historical sig- nificance of this city while en- joying some spine-tingling sto- ries." Fern will present a reading from her book and will sign copies. Books will be avail- able for purchase price of $10. Books are also available at Al- bert and Arnold's wine shop on Washington Street and the Vis- itor's Center on George Street.
