The fifth annual Haunting of Hannon, Murders in the Rue Bibliothèque, brought to life stories of mystery, imagination, and the occult detectives and paranormal investigators of literature, including:
- Seabury Quinn’s Jules de Grandin and Dr. Trowbridge
- Algernon Blackwood’s John Silence
- William Hope Hodgson’s Thomas Carnacki, the Ghost Finder
- Many Wade Wellman’s John Thunstone
- Sax Rohmer’s Morris Klaw
- Joseph Payne Brennan’s Lucius Leffin
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes
- Margery Lawrence’s Miles Pennoyer
- Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot
and great mysteries, such as “The Problem of Cell 13,” Wilkie Collins’ “A Terribly Strange Bed” and “The Aluminum Dagger.” Plus, there was a demonstration of what happens when you die of fright. All hosted by Poe’s master detective, C. Auguste Dupin.
Families were encouraged to attend the Saturday Haunting of Hannon Library, which included stories about the strange relationship between Dr. Seuss and Mr. Hyde, Bunicula, and the mystery of the walking pants (with no one inside them).
