SASS Presents: Real, Scary History!

Oct 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free

The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) is proud to present a series of free lectures designed to both entertain and enlighten. We meet at The Bedford, the 2nd Tuesday of each month to discuss historical topics that you probably knew at one point but don’t remember anymore. Plus, there will be drink specials!

What’s scarier than a call from an unknown number or looking at your bank account the morning after a long night out? The real, scary history that you’ll learn at SASS at our 4th annual Halloween special! Get into a ghoulish mood with lectures from our awesome speakers and themed drink specials.

The Night’s Terrifying Talks will Include:

* Real Zombies Revealed
* Til Death Do Us Part: Memento Mori & Mourning Jewelry
* Vampires, A History


Lecture Low-Down:
