Zombies at the library

It’s pop culture’s Zombie Apocalypse.

Zombies are enjoying a heyday. There is a whole line of zombie literature, movies, television shows and, in Spokane, a zombie-themed doughnut shop. The Center for Disease Control has a whole webpage dedicated to zombie preparedness.

At the Spokane Valley Library on Tuesday, zombies took center stage as children from sixth grade through the 12th learned how to apply makeup to look like the undead, decorated cupcakes to look like tasty, worm-infested brains and learned about books they could read that feature zombies.

Librarian Cindy Ulrey said her favorite zombie-themed book series is the “Rot and Ruin” books by Jonathan Maberry. More here. Lisa Leinberger, SR
