Countdown to Witch Week 2020: One week to go

Halloween card, 1908, NYPL

Actual Halloween may be cancelled this year, but you can celebrate it virtually with us, during Witch Week!

Don’t miss out on the fun: Apply your Gothic makeup, put on your best costumes, and settle down for a close reading of Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.

The 1980s music to inspire your nightmares ends with this industrial classic from Ministry [set to the 1929 cartoon, “Hell’s Bells”, directed by Walt Disney (!) and drawn by Ub Iwerks, Silly Symphonies series; read more about the film here]:

    The audiobook for The Graveyard Book is a real treat (if you’re looking for another way to enjoy the story)! I’m not likely to participate this year because once the library reopened, I went crazy with holds/requests and reading projects that weren’t possible while the system was shut down (which it might be again, soon) and now I’ve got to manage them them. A lovely “problem” to have, in the broader scheme of things though. Enjoy your reading!
