Horror Movie Trivia: Women in Horror Edition




Each semester, AofR addresses a portion of our programming to a particular genre, art form, movement, or special topic of interest via exhibits, displays , workshops, readings, lectures, panel discussions, and other activities. Focus topics reinforce the Library as a place of creative conversation and inquiry, bringing art and scholarship together, as well as to explore available resources in the Library, on campus, and in the greater Chicago community.

Join the Columbia College Chicago Library Gaming Society for a special edition of our annual Horror Trivia Night, this time celebrating the ladies of horror, from she-beasts to final girls in honor of our BEAUTIFUL MONSTROSITIES fall focus month. Snacks! Prizes!
