Thursday, October 22, 2015 @ 6:30 p.m. Registration Required!

Horror Film History Program!

Join the Athol Public Library at 568 Main Street on Thursday, October 22, 2015, at 6:30 p.m., when we welcome Frank Mandosa for his lecture, Vampires, Monsters, Aliens, Masked Killers, and Zombies: A Look at the History and Impact of the Horror Film

This program explores the history of the genre (including brief references to Poe, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, etc.). The program includes trivia questions, photos, YouTube clips from some of the 1930s-era Universal classics, and looks at trailers of different subgenres of horror including, but not limited to, the vampire film, the supernatural film, and the zombie film.  All clips are devoid of anything graphic or suggestive.  Mr. Mandosa will also provide a fun raffle prize for one lucky program attendee.

Frank Mandosa is a full – time high school English teacher with a lifelong love for cinema.  Since 2012 he has been “hosting” on a wide variety of film-related topics - mostly at town libraries.  Last February, he wowed us at the library with his Academy Awards: The Good, The Bad, & The Outrageous presentation.

Now join us for a creepy slideshow presentation filled with horrific fun for this October season. 

This library program is free and open to the public.

Please call the library to sign up at 978-249-9515.  REGISTRATION REQUIRED.  Space is limited.

Funding for this program is generously supplied by the Friends of the Athol Public Library.
