Happy Halloween! Due to the NY whiteout on Saturday and a lingering cold, it was a pretty low-key holiday for me—I did get to dress up briefly as Florence Welch, but most of the weekend consisted of spooky movies (Halloween, Hocus Pocus) and Isaak Dinesen’s Seven Gothic Tales.
Luckily there are some dark and disturbing events this week to keep the holiday rolling—readings that include Joyce Carol Oates, Chuck Palahniuk, and Gregory Maguire (Wicked).
Oh man. Where to begin.
