The site where Bobby Mackey’s nightclub sits in Wilder, Ky., has a long and often nefarious history. 

In fact, Dan Smith, author of the new book Ghosts of Bobby Mackey’s Music World, was shocked to find out that “every incarnation of the building, or whatever was there, included death and dark matters,” as he recently told WVXU.

Those matters included a public gallows in the 1800s and myriad notorious mob exploits in 1950s, when it was a casino called the Latin Quarter.

Smith has done his historical research, but he also has first-hand experience of the site’s haunted nature: “These are the most highly intelligent spirits that I’ve ever met.” Smith will no doubt touch on such paranormal oddities when he discusses his book. 

1-3 p.m. Free. The Booksellers on Fountain Square, 505 Vine St., Downtown, 513-258-2038.
