PEN: Standard Talks: And at Night She Summons the Ghosts
Where: The Standard, New York, High Line Room, 848 Washington St., New York City
Everybody knows that the average ghost prefers to remain beyond the reaches of reality. But calling forth the literary ghost to roam among the living? Well, that’s an elegant task for an exquisite storyteller. Join host Sunny Bates and other master raconteurs as they offer up tales about the supernatural, a practice that dates back to the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh, Virgil, and Ovid. Who knows, a few ghosts may come out to commune with participants.
With Mario Bellatin, Corinne May Botz, Richard McGuire, Kjersti Annesdatter Skomsvold, Craig Taylor, and surprise guests; hosted by Sunny Bates
