A Night of Chilling Stories with GARETH HINDS and BEN LOORY

Attention all Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark fans: this is an event you’d regret missing.

Brookline Booksmith welcomes artist-adapter GARETH HINDS and author BEN LOORY for a night of their chilling tales.  HINDS will be presenting his graphic novel Poe: Stories and Poems, a Graphic Novel Adaptation, and BEN LOORY will be discussing his story collection Tales of Falling and Flying.  Both HINDS and LOORY have received high praise for their books from critics and from authors such as Ray Bradbury and Ransom Riggs.

Poe: Stories and Poems is a thrilling adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known works such as “The Cask of Amontillado”, “The Masque of the Red Death”, “The Pit and the Pendulum”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and “The Raven”.

LOORY returns with a second collection of timeless tales, Tales of Falling and Flying, inviting us to enter his worlds of whimsical fantasy, deep empathy, and playful humor in the signature voice that drew readers to his highly praised first collection.

This event is free and open to the public.
