Halloween Eve: Macabre Stories from the Top Purveyors of the Creepy

October 30, 2011

Come warm up for Halloween at the KGB Bar with an evening of macabre stories from the top purveyors of the creepy, some true, some anatomically correct… and all very scary. 

Tonight’s event includes medically accurate zombie neurobiology from a professor in psychiatry at Harvard University, expert lessons in taxidermy, and more Bram Stoker Awards than you can shake a stick at. 
Our roster of all-star readers include Jack Ketchum (The Girl Next Door), Dr. Steven Schlozman (The Zombie Autopsies), Melissa Milgrom (Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy), and Clay McLeod Chapman (Rest Area) and Sarah Murray (Making An Exit)
