Monsters are coming to our Main Branch during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

Largely Literary Theater Company cofounders Sara Showman and Mark Dawidziak will use lighthearted sketches, props and costume pieces to explore Hollywood’s Golden Age of horror with a spotlight on the Universal films starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.

They’ll also talk about the genre’s literary origins, including masterpieces by Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson and H.G. Wells.

The program is free to attend and open to all. Due to limited space, registration is required. Sign up online or by calling us at 440-255-8811 ext. 1.
