If the rampant amount of paranormal-related television shows is any indication, belief in the paranormal has skyrocketed in the last few years. Or, perhaps more accurately, it’s not necessarily the amount of people who believe in the paranormal that is rising, but the attention that is paid to those who do.
Esposito’s experiences support the findings from a new study conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. That study showed a narrow majority of Americans say they have had some kind of paranormal experience and almost one-in-three said they believe in ghosts.
“Ghosts are not necessarily something to be scared of,” Esposito said.
Esposito’s written two books on local ghost stories, “Ghosts of Old Rochesterville” and “Ghosts of Genesee Country”.
You can find more information on local hauntings and information about Esposito’s ghost walks at his website. Esposito is also hosting a book signing at the Bagel Bin in Brighton on Saturday, January 16 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
I chose to cite this article mostly because it’s about a man releasing a book on local haunted history in the Rochester, New York area. Who happens to be having his book signing at the local “Bagel Bin.” Rock on, Mr. Esposito.
