About The Event

In person at Treadwell's,  AJ West is in conversation with Christina about Edwardian spiritualism, in particular the bizarre and tragic case of the Belfast engineering professor who became obsessed with spiritualist seances. Working with a young woman medium, Professor William Crawford threw all his intelligence and ability into figuring it out, so he can lay claim to being 'The Spirit Engineer' - this was not in itself unique, but the turn of events spiralled out of control into an uneahrd-of scenario. AJ West discovered the story and has just published it in the acclaimed book, The Spirit Engineer. Join us for a sofa-chat, with your involvement in the Q & A, then for drinks after. AJ will be signing books, so you can get a signed copy or two, for yourself and Christmas presents for friends.  Max. 35 places (social distancing) Proof of vaccination required (card or NHS app). Alternative, pic of negative LFT test within 24 hours
