*We're sorry, This event has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date* Known as the 1949 St. Louis Exorcism, the story of possessed child Roland Doe was immortalized in the groundbreaking novel and film The Exorcist. Much has been written about the case, but the truth has been shrouded in secrecy . . . until now.Library: K. Linnemann Branch Map
Join Steven A. LaChance, as he shares the shocking evidence for how a family’s grief over the death of a sister progressed into a full-blown demonic possession. While the conventional story is that Roland Doe brought the demonic infestation upon himself, LaChance convincingly suggests an alternative interpretation, and provides new insights into the nature of possession itself.
The events of 1949 culminated in grueling exorcism rites, but the story doesn’t end there as LaChance guides readers through the stunning aftermath that forever changed the Catholic church and the city of St. Louis.
Books will be available from Main Street Books.Presenter: Steven LaChance
