Kathleen Shanahan Maca will sign and discuss Ghosts of Galveston (History Press; $19.99).
Kathleen Shanahan Maca has been researching genealogies and cemeteries for over 40 years. A graduate of Sam Houston State University, she is a member of the Texas Chapter for the Association for Gravestone Studies, as well as the Friends of Galveston Cemeteries group. She gratefully acknowledges the Galveston and Texas History Center at the Rosenberg Library in Galveston for sharing images from its archives.
One of the oldest cities in Texas, Galveston has witnessed more than its share of tragedies. Devastating hurricanes, yellow fever epidemics, fires, a major Civil War battle and more cast a dark shroud on the city's legacy. Ghostly tales creep throughout the history of famous tourist attractions and historical homes.
