10/23 Catholic School & Other Tales of Terror @ Classic Lines

THIS FRIDAY (h/t Joan Bauer)…
CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND OTHER TALES OF TERROR
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 7 P.M.
CLASSIC LINES BOOKSTORE, 
5825 FORBES AVENUE, SQUIRREL HILL (15217)
 
Join three writers who graduated from the same Catholic high school–ANGELE ELLIS, 
BOB WALICKI, and THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER–for an evening of work inspired 
by their twisted, haunted pasts!

As this event is a week before Halloween and All Souls’ Day, expect to be chilled and thrilled. Wine (unconsecrated) and Halloween candy will be served.

Costumes are optional, although the writers will be shedding a few veils during the course of the evening.

P.S. For inquiring minds: The high school was Vincentian, located in the profoundly spooky North Hills, just off of McKnightmare Road!

AUTHOR BIOS:

A psychic recently told ANGELE ELLIS that during the next year, she would be surrounded by coffins. Labeled “a very disturbed girl” by her high school principal, Angele has lived up to that description by publishing poetry, fiction, and reviews in fifty publications and ten anthologies. She is author of Arab on Radar (Six Gallery Press), whose poems won her a fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and Spared (A Main Street Rag Editors’ Choice Chapbook).

THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER
??…Shh. It’s a mystery!

ROBERT WALICKI still is traumatized by the paddle that hung on the wall of his grade school principal’s office. Despite being tortured by nuns and ghosts alike, he has found time to publish poetry in a number of journals, including Pretty Owl Poetry, Blast Furnace, and The Kentucky Review. His debut chapbook is A Room Full of Trees (Redbird Press). His second chapbook, The Almost Sound of Snow Falling, is due in February from Night Ballet Press.
