Greensburg library plans ‘Macabre Masquerade’ fundraiser

Greensburg Hempfield Area Library’s annual Library Libations fundraiser on Nov. 10 will have an Edgar Allan Poe theme. The author of macabre poems and tales is immortalized in this Boston statue.

Edgar Allan Poe, the author of spine-tingling tales such as “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Cask of Amontillado” will be there in spirit as the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library hosts its annual Library Libations fundraiser on Nov. 10.

Set for 6-9 p.m. in the library at 237 S. Pennsylvania Ave., Greensburg, the event will be themed “A Macabre Masquerade — An Evening Celebrating Poe.”

Guests are invited to come in costume to enjoy live entertainment, heavy hors d’oeuvres and an open beer and wine bar.

Tickets at $75 each should be purchased in advance at 724-837-6620, ext. 15. Some tickets may be available at the door, if space permits.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
