What is it about lighthouses that attracts ghostly spirits? Maybe it’s simply a passion that will not go away. Lighthouse keepers were known to be extremely dedicated to their profession and it seems that many were never able to give it up — even after death. More than 30 lights in Michigan are rumored to be haunted. From the smell of cigar smoke at Seul Choix Point Light to the mysterious housekeeping at White River Light Station and the antics at Waugoshance Shoal, these stories will entertain all ages. This popular program is coming from the pages of Michigan’s Haunted Lighthouses — a book by Dianna Stampfler, published in spring 2019 by The History Press. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing. 

An adaptation of Michigan's Haunted Lighthouses titled The Ghostly Tales of Michigan’s Haunted Lighthouses was recently released by Arcadia Children’s Books as part of its new Spooky America series. Longtime author and editor Diane Telgen has turned these historic and haunted tales into ghoulishly gruesome and fantastically phantasmic stories for young readers aged 8-12.  


The next book by Dianna Higgs Stampfler is scheduled to be released in March 2022 from The History Press (as part of the Murder & Mayhem series): Death & Lighthouses on the Great Lakes — A History of Misfortune and Murder.
