On September 16th, 1932, acclaimed Broadway performer and aspiring film actress Peg Entwistle plummeted to her death from the top of Hollywood sign. Police immediately ruled the case a suicide, or was it?
Join the CCC Library Gaming Society for an evening of interactive murder mystery fun and a swanky 1930’s Hollywood party, complete with hors doeuvres, mocktails, music, dancing, and Hollywood gossip aplenty. Costumes encouraged, but not required.
