Horror Fest – March 7 & 8

03 Mar

Last year, Emz Mazie (author Emerian Rich) and Bearon Schoonhoven (author Mark Eller) sponsored the first Horror Fest, and this year Bookstacks is picking up the reins. We have several co-sponsors offering events as well: The Guild of UK Writers; West of Ireland Library; authors Mark Eller, Emerian Rich, and Michael A. Stackpole; and Age & Country Hotel.

In addition to author readings and storytelling, we have are holding a monster/creature avatar meets fashion show titled “Beauty and the Beast.” We have also included some social time as well. First up is a murder mystery event at Age & Country Hotel — expect a few spooks to participate in that one.  On Sunday the band Born Again Pagans will perform in the afternoon, and we will hold a Horror Costume Party as our closing event. Start planning your outfit now!
