In July, the week-long Antioch Writers' Workshop was held in Yellow Springs. The workshop's faculty members, all published authors, held nightly readings at Antioch University Midwest during that week and for the month of October we'll be bringing excerpts from some of those readings on WYSO Weekend.
For the final week of the month, we hear from Cathy Essinger, the author of 3 books of poetry. Her work has been featured on The Writers' Almanac and Conrad's Corner here on WYSO.
Horrorama is an annual movie marathon for charity at the Englewood Cinema. This year's event on October 25th features Hammer's The Mummy and George Romero's Dead Trilogy (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead). Organizers Matt Brassfield and Rick Martin and hosts A. Ghastlee Ghoul and Jeff McClellan joined Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt in the studio for a preview of the festivities.
Horrorama 2013 is Friday, October 25th at Englewood Cinema. Doors open at 6:30pm.
