Talking to the Dead: Kate and Maggie Fox and the Rise of Spiritualism
Barbara Weisberg (au)
Follows the remarkable story of the Fox sisters in mid-19th cent. rural NY, who were catapulted to fame after word spread that they communicated with spirits. Yet 40 years after those first mysterious knocks were heard in their house, the sisters denied that they had ever been in contact with the dead. Shortly after, in another reversal, they changed their story again & reaffirmed their faith in the spirit world. Were the Fox sisters con artists who had taken a childhood prank too far? Or were they really in touch with “voices from beyond”? This bio. traces not only the lives of Kate, Maggie, & their family, but also the social, religious, econ., & political forces that helped shape the Spiritualist movement. “A compelling overview of a remarkable period in U.S. history.”
