So we’re bringing back ZombieFest this year in the form of Zombie Prom. We’ll be showing a zombie movie, crowning a zombie king and queen, and dancing to some zombie tunes. To celebrate and promote our event, I thought I’d create a deliciously creepy book display.
I pulled all of the zombie-themed books I could find, both from YA and the adult section:
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Zom-B by Darren Shan
Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry
World War Z by Max Brooks
Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies by Seth Graham Smith
The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Using a white table cloth and some paint, my teen volunteers helped me create our “The Zombies Are Coming…” banner. To finish it off, I attached zombie “caution tape” over the windows, along with our zombie standee, a few severed limbs, some moss and a couple tombstones.
So far, it’s been a tremendously popular display. Here’s hoping it’ll help us successfully promote Zombie Prom!
