Selected Shorts: The Stories of Shirley Jackson

February 24, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

An evening of stories from the celebrated author of “The Lottery,” whose visions of small-town America feature unexpected twists that turn ordinary places into chilling nightmares, in honor of the centennial of her birth. With readings by Paul Giamatti, Cristin Milioti (Fargo) and Mary Louise Wilson (Mozart in the Jungle) and Stephen Kunken (The Affair, Billions).

Hosted by A. M. Homes.

“Shirley Jackson is unparalleled as a leader in the field of beautifully written, quiet, cumulative shudders.”
—Dorothy Parker

“Shirley Jackson is the master of the haunted tale . . . Everything this author wrote . . . has in it the dignity and plausibility of myth . . . Shirley Jackson knew better than any writer since Hawthorne the value of haunted things.”
—The New York Times Book Review
