Get into the Halloween spirit and help raise money for the Poe Museum by shopping at the Chesterfield Towne Center Barnes & Noble on October 23rd!
All you have to do is come to the store (located at 11500 Midlothian Turnpike) on October 23rd, 2011 and buy books. When you get to the register mention you are with the Poe Museum and a percentage of the money you spend will go to support the Poe Museum in Richmond. Anything you buy, from books to Nooks to muffins in the coffee shop helps.
We’ll have a host of fun and activities throughout the day including Black Cat & Raven puppet making, readings of Poe’s works and readings from the new Richmond Macabre horror anthology as well as a special appearance by Unhappy Hour favorite Beggars of Life.
Here is a schedule of the activities planned for the day:
10 A.M.-Noon Make your own black cat and raven puppets
Noon “The Pit and the Pendulum” read by Scott Bergman of Haunts of Richmond
1 P.M. Reading from the new horror anthology Richmond Macabre
2 P.M. Horror makeup demonstration by actor Keith Kaufelt
