Haunted Places is a class at East, taught by Ms. G and Hanna. The class is most simply described as a literature-philosophy-anthropology-sociology-psychology course. In Haunted Places the reading material was "The Woman in Black", "Empire Falls", "The Turn of the Screw", "Woman Warrior", "Castle of Otranto",works by Edgar Allan Poe, and other bits throughout the course. One of the main components of Haunted Places was Ms.G's love for the TV show "Supernatural" and her ability to turn her students into lovers of the sometimes shirtless duo in a short three weeks.The official mascot of Haunted Places is Bogey who was carried by class members to class the first two days. Another would be the never ending inside jokes.
