Come discuss David Jaher’s exploration of Mina “Margery” Crandon (1888 – 1941), who claimed to be a psychic who channeled her dead brother. Margery, who was nicknamed “the Witch of Lime Street,” was promoted by author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, of Sherlock Holmes fame, and publicly doubted by the magician Harry Houdini. Come discuss the first part (parts I-V; first 180+ pages) of this fascinating historical investigation. We’ll finish the book for our discussion in April. RSVP to LeaderHugh@phillyethics.org.
