COLIN DICKEY at Town Hall
Co-presented with TOWN HALL ARTS & CULTURE. Creeping as we are towards Halloween, an evening with author and scholar on death and mortality Colin Dickey seems apt. He is here with Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places (Viking). “You wouldn’t expect to read about brothels, human psychology, Victorian architecture, even a suburban Toys R’ Us, and come out the other side with an entirely different understanding and appreciation for ghosts. But Colin Dickey’s writing is just that good. Ghostland is strange and un-settling in the best possible way.”—Caitlin Doughty. “Always fascinating, sometimes horrifying. Ghostland is a remarkable portrait of the ways that the walking dead—or our beliefs in them—wander through, and shape, American history.”—Deborah Blum. $5 tickets are available at the door or in advance via www.townhallseattle.org (1.888.377.4510). Town Hall Seattle is at 1119 Eighth Avenue (at Seneca).
