Chat with a Curator: Halloween

Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Halloween postcardThis fall we’re introducing a new kind of public program—one that gets you in conversation with our curators about our collection material! On Wednesday, October 30, from 5 to 7 p.m., we will host our first “Chat with a Curator” program, during which the public is invited to drop in anytime during that window to view a selection of collection materials about Halloween and talk about them with some of the AAS curators. The items will range from children’s books and postcards to “haunted” diaries and early illustrated editions of classic scary tales, from documents about the Salem Witch Trials to “ghost” stereocards—just the thing to get in a spooky mood!

Halloween postcardWhile there is no charge for this program, a suggested donation of $5 is recommended. Please also note that curators will be available to talk about the collection material on view during the program, but discussions about other research topics and/or donations should be held at a separate time.

Please contact Kayla Hopper, director of outreach, with questions at or 508-471-2129
