Believe It or Not
Geeks, rejoice! There’s nerd love in the air, and Harry Potter heads, Tolkien fans, Trekkies, gamers and cosplayers of all types are invited to tonight’s Nerd Love Is True Love: A Science Fiction/Fantasy Sing-Along and Sale.
At the gathering, organized by Tolkien discussion society the Grey Havens Group, participants will have the chance to sing along to selections from their favorite science-fiction and fantasy movies, watch humorous skits and try their hands at a wide range of nerdy trivia. Costumes are highly encouraged.
Skeptics and Muggles are invited, too — and they can make new friends over a glass of Klingon Blood Wine (non-alcoholic) and TARDIS-shaped Dr. Who cookies. “Grey Havens Group does a lot of literacy-themed events to encourage family literacy,” says the group’s founder, Kelly Cowling. The soon-to-be nonprofit also throws library-based events throughout the year, as well as adults-only Tolkien and Harry Potter discussion groups.
Nerd Love, an all-ages event, opens at 6 p.m. at Barbed Wire Books, 504 Main Street in Longmont; tickets are $5 at the door. For more information on the party and other Grey Havens events, visit www.greyhavensgroup.com.
