"Goreyesque: A Tribute to Edward Gorey" Reading Event in Chicago

The editorial team of Goreyesque, along with the folks at LUMA, will host a Reading Event, open to the public, on Tuesday, April 29 at 6:00 p.m. Authors Joe Meno (Office Girl), Sam Weller (The Bradbury Chronicles) and Adam McOmber (The White Forest) will be featured readers at the event. They will be joined by Juli Clifton, Grace Hertenstein, and Danielle Wilcox, who will read short stories, and Pete Anderson and Tina Jens, who will read poems.

Goreyesque features stories, poems, essays, and artwork from creators around the world. Established professionals and aspiring novices appear side-by-side. The catalyst for it all was the return of Edward Gorey's artwork to his hometown of Chicago at the Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA), appearing through June 15. 

Thanks to our special guest judges who selected the fiction readers: Sam Weller, author of The Bradbury Chronicles, and Mort Castle, author of Bram Stoker award-winning New Moon on the Water. Both served as co-editors of Stoker award-winning Shadow Show: All New Stories in Celebration of Ray Bradbury
