Event Details

For the latest FYI Book Club, the Kansas City Public Library is partnering with Screenland Armour to bring the story of an iconic horror movie character to readers and film fans of Kansas City. The Creature from the Black Lagoon is a movie monster with heart and soul, designed along with the fins and gills by Milicent Patrick. Lady from the Black Lagoon explores the lost legacy of Patrick. Author Mallory O’Meara will join the conversation via video chat.

The Kansas City Star partners with the Kansas City Public Library to present a book-of-the-moment selection ever six to eight weeks. We invite the community to read along. Kaite Mediatore Stover, the library’s director of readers’ services, will lead a discussion. RSVPs are required; email to reserve a copy of the book.

On Sunday, October 6, 2019, at 1 p.m. Screenland Armour will show Creature from the Black Lagoon to kick off Shocktober 2019. On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 O’Meara will speak at the Kansas City Public Library – Central Library to discuss more of Patrick’s story.
