Local Maryland author of dark urban fantasy, Rachel Rawlings, had a crazy idea. Create a book convention for genre fiction and hold it the weekend before Halloween. Haunted and historic Ellicott City has always held a special place in her heart so there was no other place to take her convention. The town welcomed her and HallowRead with open arms. Each ticket sold helps raise money for the Ellicott City Partnership- a coalition of residents and business owners for the betterment of the town. HallowRead and the other events held in the historic district raise money for projects like rain barrels which help reduce the sediment and contaminants running into the Patapsco River and fund grants for projects like Paint Main Street which helped small business owners get a much needed fresh coat of paint improving the moral and over all appearance of the town. One ticket, whether it’s a $10 House on Haunted Hill attraction admission or the full monty ticket makes a difference for the town and the wonderful people who call it home, something Rachel is extremely proud of.
