How many people do you know who grew up in a haunted house and lived to tell about it? Katrina Weidman’s early exposure to the paranormal left her with a desire to seek out the unknown. Now she’s a paranormal investigator, interviewing thousands of eyewitnesses to the unknown. When she’s not tracking down ghosts, she’s puts in time as the host of TLC’s Paranormal Lockdown, airing Friday nights at 10PM. You can also find her haunting the web on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The first thing to know about Jean Galliano is that she’s busy. Very busy. The Lost Girl screenwriter is currently working on three new screenplays and is the lead writer for Kevin McCoy’s Devil’s Pocket Productions. In spite of all that, she somehow managed to find enough spare time to release the ebook …is…what a Poet said, in November; it’s available on Amazon now, and by spring 2017, it will be available in print. Even with all her accomplishments as an artist, Jean is most proud of being a grandmother – so much so that she decided to feature her granddaughter’s artwork on the cover of her book.
Manya Perel is a Holocaust survivor from Poland who spent time in eight concentration camps before being sent on a death march. She managed to escape, and hid in the forest for three days before being rescued. Manya co-authored the book Six Years Forever Lost: The Testimony of Manya Frydman Perel, and has spent her life sharing her experience in Auschwitz with audiences at schools and museums.
The Bucks County Choral Society
The Bucks County Choral Society enriches the community through the choral music experience, giving special attention to the support of aspiring young performers, composers and teachers in our community’s outstanding school choral programs. Much of their programming aims to reach the significant and ever-growing population of seniors, especially those for whom singing or listening to choral music might otherwise be inaccessible. The Choral Society’s upcoming concerts include Haydn: The Creation, and Soulful Celebration: Spirituals, Gospel, & Sacred Jazz. Check out the beautiful melodies of the Bucks County Choral Society on the web at their official site, their Facebook, and their Twitter.
