The Halloween Hour! Trivia of Terror: The weird lives of Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft

2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Event Details

Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft were not only the creators of some of the most famous horror stories ever. They were also eccentric people who lived scandalous and complicated lives. Join us to get all the dirt on who slept with who at the famous party that led to Frankenstein, why Poe kept writing about pale women with bloody faces, and why H.P. Lovecraft hated dogs. What did Shelley think of Lord Byron? What did Poe die of? And was Lovecraft actually a vampire? Find out in this presentation by Carrie Sessarego, facilitator of the Arden Dimick Book Club and co-facilitator of the Romance Book Club.

This is a Zoom-based event facilitated by the Special Collections and Archives of the Sacramento Public Library.
