Briefs: Halloween celebration at M-A High

It's the season for treats and, some say, tricks. The leadership class at Menlo-Atherton High School is getting involved in Halloween with an on-campus street fair on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Trick-or-Treat Street is intended for kids ages 2 to 12 and their families, and will include games, costume contests, a parade and a safe environment for all of that at 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton.

Halloween concert

The Redwood Symphony will perform a Halloween concert at 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Canada College Main Theatre, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd. in Woodside.

Kavalier, Clay, and the library

Comic book artists moonlighting as musicians? According to Andrew Farago, curator of San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum, that's just one of many true-life stories that inspired "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay."

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, Mr. Farago will present the facts behind the fiction, starting at 7 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room at the Menlo Park Library at 800 Alma St. in the Civic Center.
