We had our Thanksgiving pre-feast with two superb authors. Helen Marshall read from her new collection, Hair Side, Flesh Side about the length kids will go to get “artifacts” from famous saints. (Use your imagination.) And Jack Ketchum read several chilling excerpts from various works, including I’m Not Sam. Perfectly creepy readings to get us in the mood for the cold winter months. Ellen’s photos of the night can be found here.
