LETHBRIDGE HERALD

Ghost stories are part of Lethbridge’s folklore, teaching about ourselves and our history. Thursday’s Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs online session will help us discover some of the ghost stories of southern Alberta in a light-hearted look at the things that go bump in the night.

Guest speaker Belinda Crowson will lead the presentation. Crowson is a storyteller, tour guide and author who researches and shares Lethbridge’s history and stories. She is the president of the Lethbridge Historical Society, for whom she has written several books, and sits as a member of Lethbridge City Council.

Some of her books include: “We Don’t Talk About Those Women! Lethbridge’s Red-Light District;” “Vice, Virtue and Lust: Lethbridge’s Cemeteries;” “Southern Alberta’s Sugar-Coated History: The Sugar Beet Industry;” “Squirrel Whiskey, Mr. R. and Prohibition in Southern Alberta;” “So! You Think You Know Lethbridge? Lethbridge History for Kids;” and “You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up! Weird & Little-Known Stories of Southern Alberta.” Her books are available via the Lethbridge Historical Society website at lethbridgehistory.org.

Thursday’s session will take place at 10 a.m. on the YouTube Live link: https://youtu.be/Ilo3FbQnNjw.
