Everyone is welcome to join us on Wednesday, November 1, for several great programs. Kathy Willson will be at the Arnolds Park Library at 2:00 p.m., for We Shall Be Monsters. Kathy will tell how despite people questioning her morals, her husband’s philandering, and death of loved ones, Mary Shelly was still able to write one of the most popular novels of all time while she was still a teenager. This program looks at Mary Shelly’s life to learn more about her and understand why the fascination with “Frankenstein” continues. This free program is sponsored by the Arnolds Park Library Foundation, Friends of the Milford Library, and Friends of the Spirit Lake Library.
Halloween continues at the Spirit Lake Public Library on Wednesday, November 1, at 7:00 p.m., for The Devil Has My Consent program. Kathy Wilson will guide us through 1692, where more than 200 people were accused of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts; 20 were executed. Why? What happened to create such hysteria? Were the accusers possessed? Experiencing delusions caused by eating spoiled grain? Discover the real story behind the Salem Witch Trials. This is a free program and everyone is invited to attend. This program is sponsored by Arnolds Park Library Foundation, Friends of the Milford Library, and Friends of the Spirit Lake Library.
