Much of the fun is geared for school-age children, although all ages are welcome. The night’s activities include “grimy” games, “tedious” trivia, “pitiful” prizes and snacks from the “Café Salmonella”. Copies of the book will be available for check-out and given away as prizes. The Downtown Library is located at 1044 Middlefield Road.
Seven years after it began with a whimper, the Series of Unfortunate Events about the three Baudelaire orphans is going out with a roar. The release of The End concludes the perplexing and always-entertaining series which was launched with a minimum of fanfare yet went on to sell nearly 50 million copies worldwide.
