Check out the ALA’s Halloween podcast : Monster Mash
Halloween is one of our favorite times of the year here at the podcast, because we get to indulge our love of all things spooky and scary, particularly in the realm of literature and libraries.
On Episode 55 of Call Number with American Libraries, American Libraries Senior Editor and Call Number host Phil Morehart speaks with Matt Ruff, author of Lovecraft Country, the bestselling horror/fantasy novel that’s been adapted into a hit series on HBO. Next, American Libraries staffers reveal what frightens them the most, everything from existential concerns to those very fitting for the Halloween season. Finally, American Libraries Managing Editor Tera Dankowski talks with Elizabeth Campbell Denlinger, curator of the Carl H. Pforzheimer Collection of Shelley and his Circle at New York Public Library, about the collection’s materials on Mary Shelley, author of the 1818 classic, Frankenstein, or a Modern Prometheus.
