Enter if you dare and pull up a chair. Gather around the caldron for a literary scare!
Local literary artists and actors present spine tingling storytelling, poetry readings, and terrorizing theatrical performances of tales at A Night of Nefarious Narration on Thursday, October 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at artspace.
Area artists, poets and performers are Carlos Colon, Ashley Havird, Katie Bickham, Loretta Wilson Casteen, Jim McLain, Mimi Rankin Webb, Kathryn Usher, Nadine Charity, and more. Caddo Parish Poet Laureate, Carlos Colon, hosts the night of frightful festivities. “People should come to this event to experience the incredible talent of our local writers,” said Colon. “They can share in the suspense, drama, and occasional laughter of the unfolding of the Unknown.”
The artists will perform original literary works and classic favorites with themes of Voodoo, murder, snakes, ghosts, apparitions, vampires and other terrors that go bump in the night.
