Route 66, already a storied and beloved highway, just got even cooler, by our estimation anyway. Not only were there memorable sights and awesome signage along the lengthy stretch of road, some of which still remain, but now, according to author Richard Southall, there also are spooky specters haunting many of these various landmarks. In his new book, Haunted Route 66: Ghosts of America's Legendary Highway, he explores more than 100 eerie areas and the phantoms who call them home -- and he lived to tell us all about his findings! Hear from the author himself at 7 p.m. at Left Bank Books' Central West End location (399 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-6731 or www.left-bank.com). Attending this author event is free, but bring along $15.99 (plus tax) to purchase the book.
