Salon Menlo hosts Halloween event

Salon Menlo is holding a "Halloween/Edgar Allan Poe Raven" event at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, in the Fireside Room of the Menlo Park Recreation Center, 701 Alma St.

There will be a reading of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven," a classic written in 1845. Dr. Doug Kalish will recite and explain the poem, accompanied by a specially created raven sock puppet.

Menlo Park reference librarian and filmmaker Nick Szegda will screen and discuss the one hour 1935 horror film, "The Raven," directed by Lew Landers and starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.

There will be a "Farmers' Market Halloween" brunch, says Lauren John, co-founder of Salon Menlo.

The entire event is free and funded by the Al Jacobs Fund, administered by the Friends of the Menlo Park Public Library.
