Christopher Berinato

Christopher Berinato is a contributing arts & entertainment writer for Savannah Morning News, and for over a decade has written for other local publications, such as Murmur Magazine, Savannah Magazine, and Connect Savannah. Christopher is also the co-founder and co-host of Seersucker Live, a non-profit literary performance series that is part literary reading, part talk show, and part cocktail party. In the evening, you can find Christopher managing the Gallery Espresso cafe, located in the beating heart of Savannah s Historic District, where he has mingled with artists, writers, business people, tourists, tour guides, and local eccentrics for twenty years. Of all of his accomplishments, he is most proud of having a Star Wars character named after him. It’s true. Look it up on Wookieepedia.

Savannah consistently lands on—or at the top of—lists of America's most haunted cities. On a given night, competing ghost tours tromp across town squares and gather at historic buildings to hear creepy legends of unquiet spirits lurking alongside the living.
