All Hallow’s Read 2021

“You know, there aren’t enough traditions that involve giving books,” Neil Gaiman thought. And from this simple kernel has sprung All Hallow’s Read (#AllHallowsRead on twitter). So here’s his line of thinking:  “I propose that, on Hallowe’en or during the week of Hallowe’en, we give each other scary books. Give children scary books they’ll like and can handle. Give adults scary books they’ll enjoy.” Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

I have clung to this tradition since I first learned of it, ten years ago now. It’s so simple and pure, it’s a wonder it has not always been so. In keeping with the season, each year I design a poster, free to share, to celebrate the occasion. As today marks 40 days until that most glorious and frightful unholiday, I thought it a perfect time to unveil it.

Enjoy, and Happy Hallowe’en, my fellow freaks and ghouls.
