Murder at Gallagher's Gallery
Downtown Library: 1st Floor Lobby
Another murder has occurred, and this year it happened at Gallagher's Gallery! It's up to you to help the police figure out who done it! Pick up your case file, read the evidence, and form your hypothesis.
October 26th is your opportunity to meet the suspects and interrogate them about the events of the night in question. After the questioning, computer stations will be available for submitting your solution to the mystery. Prizes will be awarded to three randomly selected participants who submit the correct answer. You won't want to miss a single minute of the suspect questioning, so be sure to arrive on time!
Case files are available at all AADL branches or online.
Sounds like a lot of fun and the case files look very authentic!
I was dismayed, disheartened and distressed to see the marketing for this event ( on Facebook and on the AADL website). Murder isn't a playful event to re-enact for entertainment.
Think of it this way, would the library sposor a fun mystery game called "Rape at the Gallagher Gallery" complete with playful videos about the suspects and fun meet ups for library patrons? Probably not. That would be in bad taste and offensive. Rape is an act of violence. And murder? The ultimate act of violence.
I hope that the AADL will consider an apology to those of us who's lives have been shattered by violence and consider canceling this event and never promote murder as entertainment again.
