Looking for a sane alternative to the madness on Lincoln Road? Come to Books & Books in Coral Gables to hear Lawrence Samuel discuss his new book “Supernatural America: A Cultural History” (Praeger). “Supernatural America” is the first book to examine the cultural history of the supernatural in the United States, documenting how the expansion of science and technology coincided with a rise in supernatural/paranormal beliefs. From the flourishing of “spiritism” in the 1920s to the early 21st century, when the paranormal is bigger than ever, this entertaining and educational book explains the irresistible allure of the supernatural in America. This book is much more than an authoritative and compelling look at the cultural history of the supernatural over the last century in Americaâ€”it also explains why we want to believe.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
