Attend a spoken word performance inspired by transcripts from the seances of the medium Margery Crandon. Learn about her life as a woman, wife and psychic and her extraordinary claims to be channelling her dead brother, Walter. These live readings will get you thinking about ‘hauntology’ and the significance of women’s voices in seances.
