The Left Lane
November is National Adoption Awareness Month, and Hawai'i's adoption advocates are celebrating with a free event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Windward Mall.
The event, presented by the Hawaii Adoption & Permanency Alliance and hosted by Hawaiian 105 KINE radio, will feature music, prizes and an appearance by Clifford the Big Red Dog.
Adoption advocates will be on hand to talk to potential adoptive parents and provide information about support services. For information, call 535-0110.
"Chronicles of Narnia" author C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" provided the inspiration for the Monster Museum, a UNICEF fund-raiser opening tomorrow and held nightly 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. through Halloween, at the Unitarian Church, 2500 Pali Highway.
Uncle Screwtape explained to his nephew, Wormwood, how to get new souls for the devil. These well-appointed rooms show how monsters, witches, devils and vampires lived on a daily basis.
There won't be any screaming monsters with chainsaws. Instead, you'll find a vampire eating his elegant feast, an Ancestral Art Gallery, and a Hall of Lost Souls. Admission: $4 ($2 children, $10 family rate); 595-6202.
