This year’s annual Halloween event–a dinner party, after-hours lock-in, murder mystery–was exceptional; the theme was Harry Potter.
With an almost entirely teen cast, the Teen Advisory Board transported the guests into a Hogwarts mystery. As the Halloween feast was winding down, a mystery was afoot. The culprit could be a wizard, witch, teacher, student, muggle, squib, or ghost. Dinner guests prowled the stacks to investigate the clues.
