5th Mystery Writers in Mausoleum

Join us! 7-8:30 pm Thursday, October 25, 2018

Santa Rosa Memorial Park is hosting the fifth Mystery Writers in the Mausoleum evening on Thursday, October 25. The free event takes places 7 pm – 8:30 pm in the park's 105+year-old Odd Fellows mausoleum. Still without electricity, this building is located at 1900 Franklin Avenue in Santa Rosa, CA 95404.
The juried selection of local mystery and suspense writers and playwrights include John Lynch, Linda Saldana, and Karen Pierce Gonzalez, Linda Lau, and Rachel Mansfield. Dramatic retelling of ghost stories and murderous monologues by actors include David Gonzalez, Micaelyn Richmeier, and others. There will also be a premiere of a short horror play presented by a cast of Santa Rosa Junior College students.  All performances will be by candlelight.

“This is a great way to showcase some of the area’s local talent,” said Tim Maloney, General Manager, Santa Rosa Memorial Park. The mausoleum, he added, will be the perfect setting for spine tingling suspense.

This event is sponsored by FolkHeart Press, a Sonoma County boutique publisher of folklore-related material. Participants can have a chance to meet writers and readers after the event. Warm wear is advised.  Seating is limited.
