  5. The last Mustache Monday for the month goes to Orson Welles, who on October 30, 1938 performed one of the most traumatizing hoaxes in America. He performed the “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, based on the novel by H.G. Wells, which caused widespread panic when listeners took this realistically performed news report of an invasion from Mars to be true. 
Stop by the Library to listen to the "War of the Worlds" broadcast, originally written by Howard Koch.
Happy Mustache Monday!

  6. Sir Walter Raleigh is not only known for his sophisticated mustache-beard combo. He was also an English aristocrat, writer and poet who after exploring the Americas in search of “El Dorado” was executed by the Spanish in October 1618. He lived an exciting life of exploration, scandal and rebellion.
