Random House Presents Halloween

Celebrate the spookiest season with spells, tarot, readings, and raffles!

October 29, 2020 in Virtual Event

The witches are in the air, the pumpkins are in the coffee, and the ghosts are haunting their houses. Spooky season is finally upon us, and this year we’re throwing everything we have into Halloween, even if we have to celebrate virtually.

Join us on Thursday, October 29 at 8:00 PM ET for Random House Presents: Halloween, our digital send-up of all things creepy, magical, and autumnal.

Moderated by assistant director Maya Battle—our in-house Halloween expert—the evening will include a spell session with Jamie Della (author of The Book of Spells and The Wicca Cookbook) Meg Rosenbriar (The Healing Power of Witchcraft), and Mya Spalter (Enchantments), a tarot card reading with Yoshi Yoshitani (Tarot of the Divine), and harvest moon–inspired readings from a group of authors we definitely want in our coven: K-Ming Chang (Bestiary), Julia Heaberlin (We Are All the Same in the Dark), Naomi Novik (A Deadly Education), and Francesca Serritella (Ghosts of Harvard).

Expect chills, thrills, and—of course—raffle prizes from our partners! We’re proud to partner with Urban Outfitters and Harry and David on this event. With your $10 ticket, in addition to admission to the evening’s event, you’ll also receive a virtual swag bag with discount codes for some of our partners’ best-selling products—as well as custom Zoom backgrounds to liven up your video meetings!

Register for all this spookiness on Eventbrite!
