Communing with the Dead, an All Souls Reading of spooky prose by candle light at KGB Bar Friday, October 30th 7pm. Readings by Catherine Chung, Sharon Guskin, Arli Middendorf, and Nghiem Tran.
The featured reading of ghost stories at KGB Bar & Lit Mag was Catherine Chung’s bone-chilling piece, which she read a candle-lit room. The story was published by Catapult a few months later.
Read the full story on the Catapult website:
“When I turned her over, there was a gash on her forehead, wet with blood. I touched it with my finger. I picked her up and she was light in my arms, her stiff silk dress crumpled between us. Her body was warm and soft and limp, and I knew I should not be holding her, just as I knew I should not have chased her, but she was so small and harmless and afraid, like a baby animal, I thought, like a bunny. I could not help myself.”
