The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Presented by Sydney Sherman - Livestreamed Event

Sydney Sherman, long-time friend and collaborator of North Branford Public Libraries, returns once more to discuss the haunting tale of Emily Rose.

The tragic story of Anneliese Michel, AKA Emily Rose, has been portrayed in countless books and movies. But the real story has gone untold.

Was this the story of a young girl possessed by a demon, or was she suffering from a common psychological disturbance? Did her gender and her religion play a role in her treatment and ultimate demise?

Join acclaimed metaphysical author and speaker Sydney Sherman as she presents a very different portrayal of events and discusses the many little-known facts about this sad case.

Registration Required! This Livestreamed Event can be viewed from home, or in the Atwater Memorial Library's Community Room.
