I won’t be able to attend due to a family commitment, but that’s no reason for you to miss a very cool evening of free entertainment at The Book Exchange (1588 Washington St. E, not too far from The Capitol). From 5 PM to 8 PM tonight, Brian Hatcher, co-author of “Legends of the Mountain State, Vol. I and II: Ghostly Tales from the State of West Virginia,” will be reading his work, and there will be music from Radio Free Charleston faves, Captain Crash and The Beauty Queen From Mars. 

Costumes are encouraged, but not required.  This is the grand-reopening week for The Book Exchange, which promises tons of cool events in the coming weeks.  In fact, starting next week, The Book Exchange will be selling the DVD of “Weird Wonderful: The Braxton County Monster,” which debuts Saturday night at the RFC Halloween Party.
