Upcoming programs at Bay Village Branch Library

"The Wolf Man," "The Bride of Frankenstein," "Creature from the Black Lagoon" – these horror movies from Hollywood's Golden Age catapulted the characters to cult status. On Saturday, Oct. 20, at 2 p.m., Largely Literary Theater presents lighthearted sketches, props and costume pieces to explore Hollywood's Golden Age of Horror. Join us for a monstrous good time that shows how famous film fiends became beloved characters. This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. There will also be a book signing featuring many of Mark Dawidziak's horror-centric titles. You won't want to miss this fun program just in time for Halloween!
