Author Event: "Shapeshifters: A History" with John Kachuba

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Edible Flower Power
Woodbourne Library
Community Room

There is something about a shapeshifter -- a person who can transform into an animal -- that captures our imagination; that causes us to want to howl at the moon, or flit through the night like a bat. Many people believe they exist. Featuring a fantastic and ghoulish array of examples of shapeshifters from history, literature, film, TV, and computer games, Shapeshifters explores our secret desire to become something other than human. The program is free, but registration is required to ensure adequate seating. Books will be available for purchase.
