NLM at Night: Night of the Lying Dead

October 20 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $15

In the spirit of Halloween, join us for an evening exploring the terrifying ties between truth, lies, and fear. Film critic for Newsday Rafer Guzman dives into horror on the silver screen to show how eras of movie monsters reflect real-world anxieties, from the “body snatcher” films that characterized the McCarthyistic 1950s to the examinations of race and gender in today’s social horror hits. Hear from Kathy Kelly, owner of Paranormal Books and Curiosities and curator of The Paranormal Museum, about how horrifying happenings spread like wildfire through rumors, urban legends, and folklore.

Explore our latest exhibition truth* and walk the fine line between truth and lies. What are you really afraid of? Grab a signature cocktail, sit back, and find out! 


Kathy Kelly is a true student of the paranormal. From her first play written at age 8 called, “Monsters” to her most recent trip to investigate the Queen Mary, Kathy eats, sleeps, and loves the paranormal. A steadfast supporter of story telling and community building, Kathy believes that in every story there is a kernel of truth and sometimes a whole lot more than that.

Kathy opened Paranormal Book & Curiosities in 2008 and The Paranormal Museum soon after to share her love of the strange and unusual with others. A gifted story teller, Kathy has a Master’s degree in history and find that the two go hand in hand. Her lectures are intriguing and entertaining as well as illuminating and unique. Kathy’s knowledge of history and all that is paranormal are only surpassed by her friendly and humorous personality.
