TED Talk in Norristown

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).


The Norristown Preservation Society will once again host their annual Haunted Mansion at Selma (1301 W Airy). The mansion will be decked out for Halloween. Ghouls, zombies and other unworldly beings will roam the halls. You may even see/hear/feel one of Selma's infamous ghosts.
