    In anticipation of Halloween, Elizabeth Richmond-Garza, Douglas Bruster, Molly Schwartzburg and Thomas Garza read passages from their favorite creepy horror authors. Excerpts of terror include Oscar Wilde’s “The Canterville Ghost,” William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Black Cat” and Alexei Tolstoy’s “The Family of the Vurdalak.”
