Our Dark Corners…and Yours

June 1

An evening of gothic readings!
Join authors Felice Picano, Kate Story, and poet Jeffrey Round in an evening of gothic readings.

Felice Picano will be reading from his duology, Pursuit: A Victorian Entertainment, and Pursued: Lillian’s Story. In Pursuit, a handsome, ruthlessly ambitious young right-hand man to the Lord Exchequer of England is sent across Europe to bring back his lord’s missing wife. In Pursued, Lillian tells the story of her “golden” marriage to the Lord, and how as she evolved, the marriage became a peril to her reputation and her life.

Kate will be reading from her debut collection of short fiction Ferry Back the Gifts, coming out later this year with Exile Editions. An ungifted daughter becomes convinced that her mage mother is attempting to murder her… from beyond the grave!

Jeffrey Round will be reading from Lion’s Head Revisited, a Dan Sharp mystery. “When a four-year-old autistic boy disappears on a camping trip in the Bruce Peninsula, his mother is reluctant to involve the police. Instead, she calls in private investigator Dan Sharp after a ransom note appears.” He will also be reading from Threads, his second poetry collection. “Reminiscent of Cavafy, these are intimate poems of love and death, memory and lost youth. Round writes about it all–the classics, lovers, James Dean, Puerrto Vallarta, death and suicide.–remiding us that a poem can save you, and often it’s what does.” Trebor Healey, author of A Horse Named Sorrow
