The thrills of Halloween come in many forms. This year, in addition to going trick-or-treating and visiting haunted attractions, why not engage your higher brain functions with some good ol’ scary stories?
Anaheim’s inaugural poet laureate, Grant Hier, joins poets Michelle Mitchell-Foust, Tony Barnstone, Sholeh Wolpé, Mariano Zaro, Rick Bursky and others for readings of a host of scary poems from anthologies Dead and Undead and Monster Verse.
The event takes place in the presence of the similarly themed “Ghost Stories and Fairy Tales” exhibit, which wraps up on Sunday, Sept. 30. That exhibition features a ghost story presented through a three-room diorama, which tells a haunted tale of its own through the use of miniature paintings.
Monster Verse in the Gallery at Muzeo, 241 S. Anaheim Blvd., Anaheim, (714) 956-8936; muzeo.org. Sat., Sept. 29, 2 p.m. Free with RSVP.
