The New Venetian Halloween Carnival 


Thu., Oct. 31, 7 p.m. 2013
212-334-3324

Break out your best petticoat and your most festive cravat, dust off your dirigible piloting trophies and crack open a tin of your favorite mustache wax: Melville House is throwing a steampunk-themed Halloween party at Housing Works Bookstore this year. Join authors, musicians, and every single pair of old-timey goggles this city can muster for a take on steampunk that’ll have the ghost of Verne grinning. Expect: costume contests, silent cinema, dramatic readings of Verne, and of course, most importantly, towers of creaking, steaming literature. The costume contest will be judged by Katherine Gleason, author of Anatomy of Steampunk: The Fashion of Victorian Futurism, and Noam Berg, designer, musician, and contributor to the book.
