Celebrate Banned Books Week and the beginning of spooky season with us! Join our Scary Stories documentary watch party and stay afterwards for the Q&A with Director Cody Meirick.
Scary Stories is a full-length documentary about the banned book series that includes the 1981 anthology Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and its two sequels by Alvin Schwartz. Approximately 40 interviews were conducted, from family members of the author, fellow children's book horror authors, and folklorists, to librarians, artists, and fans.
Join the conversation on Twitter using #CensorshipisScary.
