The Reluctant Spiritualist: The Life of Maggie Fox

                   by Nancy Rubin Stuart

In 1848 Maggie Fox and her sister caused a sensation by rapping out messages they received from the spirit world, ushering in a movement that would eventually claim more than a million followers across the nation. Forty years later, appearing before a packed audience at New York's Academy of Music, that same Maggie Fox denounced spiritualism, claming it was all a hoax.
