There’s a quaint studio/gallery residing among the Victorian homes near Brooklyn College that has become a sanctuary of sorts. On a typical day, this is where author and illustrator Kris Waldherr displays her work, conducts workshops, and sells books. However, once a month, visitors flock here to get psychic readings—and tonight, on the eve of Halloween, Waldherr is staying open later than usual for Tarot-a-Palooza. Having transformed her gallery into a mystical haven, she has invited tarot card readers for a night of fortune-telling fun. Food and refreshments will be served, and, as Waldherr tells us, she might have to open a bottle or two of vodka to really make a night of it.
