Digiplex Destinations and the Westfield Memorial Library Foundation are pleased to present children’s author Joe Troiano, creator of the Spookley books, in a special appearance and reading on Saturday, Oct. 29, 10:30 a.m. at the Digiplex Rialto Theater in Westfield, N.J. located at 250 East Broad Street.
Troiano, author of The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, will give a reading at 10:30 a.m. The movie, Spookley the Square Pumpkin, follows immediately thereafter at 11 a.m.
This animated film follows the adventures of a square pumpkin named Spookley, who lives in a world in which only round pumpkins are considered good. He is teased by the other pumpkins because of his odd shape. But Spookley makes friends with Edgar, Allan and Poe, three spiders who convince him that, square or not, he has a right to be the "Pick of the Patch" on Halloween. By twists and turns, Spookley comes to the realization that being different can also be a gift.
The fun begins with lobby activities, including a coloring contest, when the doors open at 10 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 29, and continues with the reading at 10:30, the movie at 11, and a raffle after the movie for Halloween treat bags with a signed book, a plush Spookley, and a movie pass for a future showing. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. This feature is Rated G and admission is only $3.50 per person. An anti-bullying PSA will be included as part of the presentation.
