Oh, the Horror!

Oh, how we love to scare ourselves with stories of ghosts and ghouls. Close your closet doors and join us in October as we lift the veil on tales of spectral visitors and haunted places.

Haunted Places and Haunted People: An Evening with Jennifer McMahon

Thursday, October 24, 7 p.m. in the Library Center auditorium

Read our interview with Jennifer McMahon.

New York Times best-selling author Jennifer McMahon's novels connect deeply to history and how it seeps into a place, whether she's writing about houses haunted by ghosts, towns haunted by the past, or people haunted by regret. Join Jennifer for a discussion about her writing, her love of the horror genre and what it means to be haunted. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event.


Friday, October 18, 6-8 p.m. for age 21 and older at Missouri Spirits, 507 W. Walnut St. Recruit and register a team of eight for a pop culture horror trivia night with our friends at Missouri Spirits.

Individual tickets are $30 and include a flight of whiskey tasters, food and prizes. This event is hosted by The Library Foundation to benefit The Library. Register online and check out sponsorship opportunities. For details, call 417-616-0586.
