Halloween is my favorite time of year…I adore the chill in the air, the autumn leaves, and the lights and pumpkins that begin to adorn the homes around Ashland.
Especially exciting this year is the release of the final book in The Lithia Trilogy, The Last Mile, which is hot off the presses. As many of you know, the fictional “Lithia” bears quite a strong resemblance to Ashland … and in this final installment of the series, our heroine is tasked with saving the town from all but certain destruction.
Kirkus Reviews writes that “Lithia hasn’t lost a bit of its quirky, high-altitude allure,” and Vickie Aldous of the Ashland Daily Tidings writes, “Readers familiar with Ashland will have fun identifying local landmarks.”
Among other exciting upcoming Ashland Halloween events are…
- the Halloween Parade, which begins at 3:30 p.m. on October 31 at the Ashland Public Library
- the Monster Dash on Saturday, October 25 at 9:30 a.m.
- the Puss N Boots costume fundraiser for Friends of the Animal Shelter on Saturday, October 25 at 6 p.m. at Ashland’s Historic Armory
- for families, the Monsters’ Family Fun Fair from 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, October 26, followed by the Kid Disco Monsters’ Ball from 6-8 p.m., sponsored by Tree House Books Secret Book Club, and also at the Armory (more info here)
