Posted by 29414135 tiny Becca on oct 12, 2014 under Event

The leaves are changing, the air's getting crisp, there are apples to bob for, pumpkins to carve--fall has befallen us, and there are some pretty awesome and spooky events ahead.

Tuesday, October 14 - The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) presents Real Scary History at the Bedford. Learn about the history of coffins, the Salem Witch Trials, and little-known serial killers!

Monday, October 20 - October isn't just about Halloween--it's about getting outside in gorgeous fall weather, too! Meet other adventure-minded folk at Outdoorfest NYC's October Mappy Hour. Learn about foliage, pore over maps, and get a sneak preview of Brooklyn's newest brewery, Threes!

Friday, October 24 - Morbid Anatomy is hosting a Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos Party, featuring costumes, Calavera make-up, tequila, music, and sugar skulls. (Those lucky souls in our class will be making their own sugar skulls that very day!)

Wednesday, October 29 - Learn all about New York City Bodysnatchers! Auther Bess Lovejoy joins the New York Obscura Society to discuss the city's early medical industry, cadavers and a controversial past.

Thursday, October 30 - Keeping things nice and creepy, Isaac Fitzerald and Alexis Coe will be discussing Erotomania and Murder at Housing Works Bookstore. Coe's book, Alice + Freda Forever, tells the real-life love story of a teenage murdress.

Happy October, and feel free to devote all your remaining time to coming up with the most excellent Halloween costume possible!
