Pontotoc’s legendary mystic, Seymour Prater, along with tales of the supernatural in our area, will be the topics of tomorrow night's presentation by acclaimed author and researcher of the paranormal, L. Sydney Fisher.
Fisher will speak Thursday (July 11) night, at 6 p.m., at the Pontotoc County Library. Admission is free and all are invited.
“We’re very excited to have Sydney Fisher,” said Bob McGee, vice president of the Pontotoc County Historical Society, which is hosting the event. “Her books about Pontotoc’s history are very informative, and she’s sure to enlighten us on aspects of our town that are fascinating, and not so obvious.”
Fisher is the author of such books as See No Evil, which Amazon lauds as a “historical thriller, with a supernatural twist,” and The Haunted, the second installment of her Haunted History Series, that focuses on Pontotoc.
“My main focus will be on the research that I have done for Seymour Prater's clairvoyant gift that includes a history of his work and contributions,” said Fisher. “I will be discussing in detail the nature of Seymour Prater's abilities. In addition, I will discuss some of Pontotoc's haunted past that includes Lochinvar history, downtown Pontotoc history, Larry Boatwright's house (The Lady Congress), and Chickasaw legends tied to the Pontotoc landscape.”
