Spend Prom in the Library: A celebration of all things Buffy
Are you tired of dances being crashed by demons? Were you too busy stopping the apocalypse to go prom dress shopping? Well don’t fret, spend prom in the library instead! Open Books invites all Scoobies to our West Loop Bookstore as we turn it into the Sunnydale High Library for our celebration of the anniversary of the Prom episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We will have Buffy trivia, Buffy themed drinks ($5 suggested donations), a photo booth, and general geeking out-ness. Feel free to break out your best prom wear or come wearing your finest Buffy or themed graphic tee. #PromUp
This is a free event open to all but we ask that you bring a book donation for admission and drinks have a $5 suggested donation.
*NOTE: trivia will include all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and contain SPOLIERS. Angel the series and the comic books will not be included in trivia.

We will be discussing Hope Larson’s graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. Along with the discussion, we will be looking at, touching, and examining works of art that are thematically relevant to the story. This includes exploring dimensionality through interaction with 3D printed/laser cut reproductions of museum objects. There will also be a sculpture making activity inspired by the protagonists travels through the 5th dimension.
