“‘The Horror in the Museum’ continues to be one of the cornerstones of the Yager Museum’s Fall schedule,” said Quentin Lewis, the Museum’s collections and programs manager. “This year we’ve got a wonderful slate of readers with plenty of tales of terror and suspense, and we’re excited that the Museum can continue to be a great space for creativity and performance, not to mention Halloween fun!”

The Yager Museum’s galleries will be also open during the readings. Visitors can explore the Museum’s current exhibits including Earth Water Sky: Landscapes from the Yager Museum; Silent Lakes and Flashing Rivers; Of Time and the River: 12,000 Years in the Upper Susquehanna Region; From Viking to Insight: Henry Cooper and the Quest for Life on Mars; Art/Politics: Power, Propaganda, and Persuasion; Sculptures in Silver: America’s Standing Liberty Quarters, 1916-1931; and Masterpieces of European and American Art: the Hartwick College Art Treasure Room.
