014 History and Hauntings of the Emerald Isle – an Armchair Power point presentation

Experience History with a Paranormal Twist on an Armchair Tour through Haunted Ireland

Ireland is famous for its “thin places,” a membrane or a thin layer between worlds that cross over each other. From pagan times to present, Ireland’s dark history has been recorded in its abbeys and churches, forts and castles, jails and graveyards by those who lived during those turbulent times and often perished because of them. Their ghosts are eyewitnesses to this history. Sometimes, they are the history.

June Gossler Anderson has traveled from her hometown of Anoka, Minnesota, the Halloween Capital of the World, where ghosts abound (and she leads Ghost Tours) to Ireland, to check out their ghostly residents as well. In researching these haunted places she has found the history that produced these earth-bound spirits to be as fascinating as the ghosts themselves.

Based on her book, History and Hauntings of the Emerald Isle, June invites you to join her in this hour-long power point presentation as we Travel on the Dark Side.

This travelogue will be presented to residents in senior facilities via the power of Zoom during the Corona Virus Shelter in Place.

015 Tracking Dracula, an Armchair Power point presentation

Published in 1897, Bram Stoker’s Gothic novel, Dracula, launched an entire genre of literature and film about vampires, those sinister figures who use their supernatural powers to hunt humans and drink their blood.

From the stone cold crypt beneath St. Michan’s Church in Dublin to the magnificent ruin of Whitby Abbey in England to the storied castles of Romania once frequented by Vlad Tepes, known by reputation as “Vlad the Impaler,” June Gossler Anderson traces the stories and the influences that led to the creation of Bram Stoker’s timeless masterpiece of horror, “Dracula.”
June is the author of ten published books; two of them histories with a paranormal twist, along with a fictional multicultural mystery of supernatural proportions. She has traveled on the dark side to five different Old World countries with her group of paranormal peeps. It is upon her travels to three of them, Ireland, England, and Transylvania in Romania, that her presentation, “Tracking Dracula,” is based.
She has gathered over 60 pictures to illustrate her hour-long presentation, “Tracking Dracula” for the residents of senior facilities to enjoy in the comfort and safety of their armchairs as it is brought to them via Zoom during this Time of the Corona Virus.

016 Minnesota Congressioal Medal of Honor Recipients – an Armchair Power point presentation

Celebrate America With a Powerpoint Presentation of Minnesota Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients by Author, Speaker June Gossler Anderson

When the National Medal of Honor Committee decided to hold its annual convention in Minneapolis/St. Paul on October 3, 2016, it asked the Minnesota Chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to research and write the biographies of the 72 Minnesota men who have received this prestigious award—their country’s highest honor. This was a good fit for the DAR which advocates education, historical preservation, and service to veterans.

June Gossler Anderson was one of the 27 women participating in this project. In addition to writing four of the bios, she took the research a step farther and saw to the editing and publishing of these bios in a 242 page book, Minnesota Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War to Vietnam.

During her hour long power point presentation of this book you will meet the 14 year-old Orphan who was awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism during a Civil War battle; the Schoolmaster who took his students to war, dooming their hometown to oblivion; a Buffalo Soldier; the Commander of the USS Arizona who went down with his ship at Pearl Harbor; a Hungarian Freedom Fighter who signed up to fight Commies in Vietnam; and a host of other brave men who fought and died for their country.

Proceeds from the sale of this book are used to support Haven for Heroes, Housing for homeless Vets.
