Read On! Homicide at Harrison House

If you’ve ever wanted to be a sleuth in a murder mystery, the Friends of the Pryor Public Library are hosting a fundraiser that will allow you to do just that. On January 28th at 7:00 PM at Fat Toad Brewing Company, we’ll play a mystery game called “Homicide at the Harrison House.”

Tickets are on sale now via the Friends’ Facebook page ( and include one drink, food, and fun. All the proceeds from the evening will benefit the Dolly Parton Imagination Library service that provides free books to Mayes County children ages 0 – 5 years.

Everyone who buys a ticket ($35 for a single ticket, $60 for a couple) will be assigned a character to play during the event – the annual Harrison House Bed & Breakfast bash. There aren’t very many characters on the guest list who get along, so the evening will be interesting and full of gossip!

The game is played in three rounds with clues given out each round. Everyone will know who their character is and what they’re supposed to say and do, so don’t be daunted by being assigned a role to play. Plus, your hostess, Drew Beasley (played by Cari Rérat), will guide you through each round and answer any questions you have about the game.

At the event, you’ll have the opportunity to sign up for membership in the Friends group as well as enroll any children under 5 years old for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. It’s truly a wonderful service that sends free, age-appropriate books to children each month in the mail. For the Friends group, the cost is only $25 per year, per child. So far, they have over 100 children enrolled in the program!

If you can’t make it to the event but still want to help the Friends group, feel free to contact them via Facebook or email them at
