Paul Collins, Nathan RabinClaire Zulkey, Elizabeth Crane Tuesday November 1st 7PM
The Collins Library is proud to present the triumphant return of Harry Stephen Keeler?to some, an overlooked genius; to others, the Ed Wood of detective fiction. The Riddle of the Traveling Skull is perhaps his best-loved work. The adventure begins when a poem and a mysterious handbag lead a man to the grave of Legga, the Human Spider?and things just get stranger from there.
The event will feature readings from:
