Welcome to the official website of John Brassard Jr, the Kitchen Table Historian.
When I was growing up, my whole family used to gather around the kitchen table at my grandparent’s house and talk. Sooner or later, we always started telling stories. At our table, nearly any topic was fair game, and the conversations ran from old family stories, to true crime, to the supernatural.
I like to think of this website as my own kitchen table, where all are welcome, and we can talk about nearly anything.
You can learn about me, including both my published works and my historical storytelling. Or, you can read my latest blog and let me tell you a true story of dark history, weird happenings, or maybe even a ghost story or two.
So pull up a chair, relax, and make yourself comfortable. Drinks are in fridge, glasses are in the cupboard, and coffee’s on the counter. You’re welcome at my table, friend. I know you’ll find yourself right at home.
