    Halloween: A Haunted History

    We are delighted to welcome back Kevin Woyce, history enthusiast and raconteur, to present on the history of Halloween.

    This colorful new program traces the strange history of Halloween, from Old World harvest festivals to our modern family holiday. Along the way, I'll discuss the origins of the Jack-o'lantern, Orson Welles' 1938 "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, the first monster movies, famous costume makers, and much more. The hour-long slideshow is illustrated with original photographs and antique Halloween cards, advertisements, artwork, and movie posters.

    This program is free and open to the public, however, registration is required. To register, please email registrations@boontonholmeslibrary.org with "Halloween History" in the subject line. We'll reply with login info. The program is appropriate for ages 10 & up
