Hail to Halloween fun @ Western State Hospital. Staff and patients dress up and party the day away! There are games, treats, and quieter fare.
In times past, I have told tales on wards and the treatment centers for Halloween and Christmas. So I was delighted to be invited back this year! In a quiet room surrounded by giant bean-bag chairs, I told stories old and new. My first story was a hit. “Overdue Fines” by Edo van Belkom is a cautionary tale of a vengeful librarian who resorts to black magic to punish those who chronically abuse their borrowing privileges. Unfortunately, she forgot to include herself among the overdue offenders!
