Halloween Hauntings



Shrewsbury Public Library (609 Main St,, Shrewsbury, MA 01545, Shrewsbury MA)

Join the Shrewsbury Public Library on Saturday, October 14th at 2:00 p.m. for Halloween Hauntings, two American tales of suspense presented in a unique one-woman show by professional actress Michèle LaRue. Written in the days of ominously flickering candles and kerosene lamps, “The Shadows on the Wall” and “The House That Was Not” continue to thrill.

In the wake of a sudden mysterious death, “The Shadows on the Wall” draws four siblings to a familiar but menacing New England parlor. “The House That Was Not” lures an unsuspecting new bride across the bleak Nebraska prairie. Authored by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman (1903) and Elia Wilkinson Peattie (1898), respectively, these tales evoke the America of a century ago, enthralling audiences today.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Shrewsbury Public Library.
