Speaker Series: History of Spiritualism in Vineland, NJ, by Patricia Martinelli

February 26 @ 2:00 pm

Patricia Martinelli, MA will be discussing her latest book titled: “We Believe: The Founding of the New Jersey State Society of Spiritualists and Friends of Progress.”
Book Overview:
This book outlines the founding of the New Jersey State Society of Spiritualists and Friends of Progress, revealing the role Spiritualism played in the lives of many people during a time of profound change in the United States. Spiritualism in the 19th century was about more than just communicating with the afterlife. A social and political movement, determined to protect the rights of the working class, believers challenged traditional structures ranging from religion to government and rocked the foundations of American life in a way that will seem very familiar to many people today.
Patricia Martinelli, MA is the author of eleven books, including “The Fantastic Castle of Vineland: George Daynor and the Palace Depression”, “New Jersey Ghost Towns: Uncovering the Hidden Past”, “Haunted New Jersey: Ghosts and Strange Phenomena of the Garden State” and more. Patricia Martinelli is the Curator of the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society. For more information, visit her website at www.patriciaamartinelli.com.
