MCPL Documentary Night
"Scary Stories"


Remember those books, "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark," written by Alvin Schwartz? Remember the spooky illustrations - created by Stephen Gammell - in those books? Did you know that these books have been the subject of numerous book challenges and were one of the most most challenged series of the 1990's?

Join us for a free viewing of "Scary Stories," a documentary directed by Cory Meirick that explores how these books influenced (and scared!) a generation of kids and what made them a target of book banning.

Free and open to all ages, because while the books may be scary, the documentary is not! No registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information.
