On the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s death, join the Center for Fiction and Community Bookstore for a discussion about the darker side of fiction and the relevance of the gothic in literature today with Edward Carey, author of his Heap House and Observatory Mansions, and Shelley Jackson, author of Half Life and 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.
