The Center for Fiction Presents:
Writing Gothic: A Lively Discussion of the Macabre
On the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s death, join us for a discussion about the darker side of fiction and the relevance of the gothic in literature today with Edward Carey, author of Heap Houseand Observatory Mansions, and Shelley Jackson, author of Half Lifeand Skin (a story tattooed serially on 2095 volunteers). There will be a short reading from Poe’s work, and Edward Gorey’s fur coat will make an appearance. Moderated by writer and bookseller A. N. Devers.
We’re hiring a part-time events assistant! If you love book events, are comfortable talking to large groups of strangers, and want to work with a belligerent cat, this might be the job for you. Contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
