From the Ghost Hound of Leesburg (“glowing eyes and a tongue of fire”) to the Mount Vernon Monster to the “forever restless spirit” of John Wilkes Booth, The Ghosts of Virginia, Vol. 3 recounts unsolved mysteries of the Old Dominion, which many students of the paranormal consider the most haunted state in the nation. Native Virginian L.B. Taylor Jr., author of Driving High (Effects of Alcohol and Drugs on Driving), Civil War Ghosts of Virginia, and Shoplifting, among many nonfiction works, spent two years criss-crossing the commonwealth for his latest volume of spectral lore; he signs books and discusses his findings at 7:30 p.m. at Borders, 8311 Leesburg Pike, Vienna.
