Like most narratives, horror movies rely upon tropes, shared assumptions, and subtext to convey their messages. Join Department of English faculty Nick de Villiers and Duncan Barlow for a brief discussion on how to identify these elements and engage with horror films in a more meaningful way. After the brief discussion we will show Rosemary's Baby and play a game of Horror Trope Bingo. It promises to be a fun and educational night to start the Halloween Season with a bang.

Publication Celebration for two new books by Jacksonville authors: STALKING OTTIS TOOLE: A SOUTHERN GOTHIC by Tim Gilmore and BRIGHTLEAF by Raleigh Rand.
About STALKING OTTIS TOOLE: A SOUTHERN GOTHIC -
Ottis Toole was either one of the worst serial killers in history or a dimwitted arsonist who never meant to kill anyone. Or someone somewhere between. It's hard to tell if Ottis Toole himself knew which Ottis was Ottis. Tim Gilmore is the author of This Kind of City: Ghost Stories and Psychological Landscapes (2012) and Ghost Compost: Strange Little Stories, illustrated by NickDunkenstein (2013). He is the creator of Jax Psycho Geo (www.jaxpsychogeo.com). His two volumes of poetry are Horoscopes for Goblins: Poems, 2006-2009 and Flights of Crows: Poems, 2002-2006. His audio poetry album Waiting in the Lost Rooms is available at http://eatmagazine and bandcamp.com/album/waiting-in-the-lost-rooms. He teaches at Florida State College at Jacksonville. STALKING OTTIS TOOLE, along with Tim's other books, is already available at Amazon.com.
About BRIGHTLEAF -
The Rapturous Rest is not a brothel, nor is it a funeral parlor. It's a boarding house located in the fictional town of Brightleaf, NC. Its proprietor, Mary Beth Green, is a self-righteous thief, liar, and carpool driver who conducts an amateur therapy group in her living room-- with a core membership that includes a Deadhead, a psychology professor, a trust-fund baby, and a man who tells fortunes based on...grocery lists. Raleigh Rand read the entire Harry Potter series aloud to her children from the time her eldest was in elementary school, until her youngest was in high school, giving each character its own, unique voice. Harry was the only character without a British accent. When Raleigh's children saw the first Harry Potter movie they were astounded that Harry was British. BRIGHTLEAF is her first novel.
