We're pleased to host Granta Magazine for a release party for their issue 117, "Horror", a compilation of new writing examining not just the horrors that go bump in the night, but those that lurk in the every day as well. The evening will feature three readings: poet D.A. Powell, whose most recent collection Chronic was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award, Peter Orner, author of the forthcoming Love and Shame and Love, and Oscar Villalon, editor of Zyzzyva Magazine, who will read a previously unpublished short story by Roberto Bolaño. Wine will be served. Join us for this evening of wonderful writing and literary conversation on Thursday, November 3rd at 7PM. See you there!
All forms of horror - whether they begin in fright or disgust - involve an extraordinary confrontation. A surprise. In essays, reporting and short fiction, this issue of Granta will reveal the many ways we can be startled into horror.
