â€œDark and Wicked Halloween Readingâ€
Sunday, October 24th, 6PM, Free
From the Gallery 5 website:Â This will be the spookiest reading of the season! Authors from the notorious Richmond Noir will team up with Beth Brown, author of Wicked Richmond, to bring you a delightfully eerie evening of true and fictional stories of the underbelly of Richmond! Keep in mind, this reading will happen at Gallery 5, once the location of Richmond’s gallows. Chilling!

Wicked Richmond, which comes out later this month, is a great book of true stories of Richmond’s darker side. Whether it is tales of Civil War espionage, Spanish pirates captured off the Virginia coast and brought to justice in Richmond, rumrunners peddling illegal liquor during Prohibition, or the misadventures of upper-crust colonial families, Wicked Richmond captures the debauchery that runs through the city’s historic past.

Tom De Haven, Andrew Blossom, and I will be doing the honors for Richmond Noir.Â Hope to see you there.
