Spooky Stories LIVE, all October long!

This month we have extra spooky story times for grown ups in store, at the library and coming soon to a pub near you as a part of our celebration of Booktoberfest. Each October, our regular twice-monthly Thrilling Tales: Story Time for Grown Ups (Mondays at 12:05 at the Central Library: lunches welcome) turns to weekly Chilling Tales. Here’s what’s in store:

Ales from the Crypt Capitol Cider

But that’s not all. On October 22 at 8:05 p.m. at the Capitol Hill branch as a part of LitCrawl Seattle, we’ll be hosting Late Night at the Library: Spooky Stories in the Stacks, featuring some fun short and spooky tales read for you live from the dark heart of the library, after-hours. And then, as Hallowe’en creeps closer, you’ll find us grabbing the mic in neighborhood bars for ‘Ales from the Crypt: Spooky Stories and Suds, a series of Booktoberfest readings about the terrors that await drinkers who aren’t careful. After a macabre aperitif of Marmalade Wine (by Joan Aiken), readers will chug-a-lug some ghastly Gray Matter, a shivery Stephen King story about what can happen when you drink beer that just don’t taste right. Catch readings of these stories on October 24 at Tippe & Drague Alehouse on Beacon Hill, on October 27 at The Pine Box and at Capitol Cider, both on Capitol Hill, and on Hallowe’en at Brouwer’s Cafe in Fremont: join these events on Facebook, and invite your friends.

Come on out and let us send a shiver down your spine. Audiobooks are great, but there’s nothing quite like the fun of coming together with others to hear a tale over lunch or a pint. Can’t make it to a live reading? We’ll be podcasting a couple of our Thrilling Tales events later this month. Until then, here are some past podcasts of classic Chilling Tales to get you in the mood:
