Ichabod Crane, Washington Irving, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow will show Monday, Oct. 28, at 2 p.m. at the Westfield Senior Citizens Housing.

The presenter brings an all new adaptation  of this horror story written by Washington Irving. The interactive one-man interpretation of the story of the headless horseman draws the audience into the schoolmaster’s world in sleepy Tarry Town.

The program, followed by discussion about this 19th century author, who also wrote Rip Van Winkle, ends with a dramatic reading of the story’s postscript.
