It’s All Hallow’s Read!

by on October 31st, 2012

A couple of years ago, Neil Gaiman wrote this blog post proposing the giving of a scary book on Halloween. Since then, the proposed suggestion has evolved into a tradition known as All Hallow’s Read, and today, you can follow the hashtag #allhallowsread on Twitter.

Here at ICPL, we have zombies, witches, vampires, and ghosts galore in our Young Adult Fiction section, now located on the 2nd Floor. Pick one out, read it, share it, and tweet it!

And explore the website! Neil Gaiman gives a great video introduction, provides a list of book recommendations for All Hallow’s Read book-giving, and more.

The Mary Sue is celebrating as well, with Eight Favorite Literary Horror Heroines.

Happy reading, and happy Halloween!
