Highlighting Michigan’s Haunted History


(ROCHESTER HILLS- Sept. 29, 2019) The mysterious history of supernatural events in Michigan will be brought to life during a thrilling performance by the talented Jenifer Strauss on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Rochester Hills Public Library.

Jenifer Strauss spent ten years as an environmental educator and teacher before creating her own business, Story Be Told. This narrative consulting business combines Jenifer’s passions for teaching and for storytelling. 

"After 28 years of traveling nationally, telling stories and sharing the power of story with others, I can honestly say that I am still very passionate about what I do!", said Strauss. "I am looking forward to sharing spine-chilling tales and helping participants remember and share stories from past memories of their own."

Strauss’ performances utilize story as the common denominator to capture people’s interest, motivate learning, inspire action, and transform lives through energetic, interactive performances.

“Tales from the Haunted Shores is a one of a kind experience where our patrons can indulge their love for ghost stories and discover the haunted history of Michigan,” said Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley. 

The program is Oct. 17 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room and is open to everyone with an RHPL library card. This program is geared toward adults and may not be appropriate for young children. Please register in advance at
