Boos and Books

Did you know Strand is hosting an epic Halloween Party full of games and prizes? If you’re still stumped as to who/what to dress up as, Strand has the perfect collection of literary villains you can be — but make sure you read the book first (or after…or during?)!

After you get all dressed up, here are some of the activities we will be doing in the Rare Book Room:

  • Costume contest with prize for winner!
  • Tarot and horoscope readings!
  • National Murder Lovers Club will be hosting a game of whodunit!
  • Spin the Wheel of Misfortune for a chance to win a prize!
  • Spooky writing activities!

Delicious treats will be provided by Max Brenner and photobooth provided by OM Digital!

Please Note: This event is intended for 21+. Ticket includes entry to the event plus one drink.
