It's Book Nerd Halloween @ Big Blue Marble!

Join your community of book-lovin' folks for HolmesO'Ween: The Hound of the Baskervilles. We'll be reading aloud this most classic of detective stories, then watching the equally classic Basil Rathbone film followed by the Sherlock season 2 adaptation.

Costumes? Heck yeah! (not required but definitely encouraged)

Plus trivia, various Holmesian fun, snacks, and more!

Suitable for ages 9 and up.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids younger than 16, or $25 for a family (2 adults plus kids, 1 adult plus kids, a parent and an aunt plus kids, a poly househould - whatever configuration you have, your family is welcome here!) Reserve your space!
