Hi everyone,

Our Fall book club selection/short story is Washington Irving's, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." There have been several book/TV/movie etc. interpretations through the years of this classic story.

This is a short story which takes place in the New York town of Tarrytown. (Sleepy Hollow) Schoolmaster Ichabod Crane tries to win the affections of heiress, Katrina Van Tassel along with his rival, Brom (Bones) Van Brunt. Ghost stories and a legend about a headless horseman, threaten Ichabod's future with Katrina. Is the local town legend about a headless horseman real? Will Ichabod Crane win Katrina's affections? How will this story end?

Please join us in the continued conversation in October of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Invite others to join our book club and discuss this great Fall classic with us. Everyone is welcome.

We have a few online copies available for checkout online at MPC Library. You can also find a copy of "Sleepy Hollow " on Project Gutenberg in several formats for free.

If you are not reading the October selection with us, please share the book(s) you are reading. We would love to hear about it.
