Join paranormalist Paul Forster as he presents an evening of Entertainment surrounding the mysterious book "The Sorry Tale of Patience Worth".

"The Sorry Tale of Patience Worth" is not just a book but a fascinating historical case of alleged mediumship and automatic writing. Patience Worth was a purported spirit personality whose literary works were claimed to be channeled through Pearl Lenore Curran, an American housewife and amateur medium, in the early 20th century.

Pearl Curran claimed that she would enter a trance state and Patience Worth, a 17th-century Englishwoman, would communicate through her, producing poems, novels, and other writings. The works attributed to Patience Worth were published between 1913 and 1937.

Some of the notable literary works believed to be channeled by Patience Worth include "Telka," "Hope Trueblood," and "The Sorry Tale."

The story of Patience Worth continues to be a captivating and controversial topic in the realm of paranormal and literary history.

Paul Forster owns a copy of this fascinating book and will demonstrate its paranormal nature by using the book to communicate with the spirit of Patience Worth!

Part lecture, part theatrical presentation, the evening promises to educate and entertain in equal measure.

This is not a spiritual event.

The evening also includes a short filmed documentary about the subject matter.
