Join the University Libraries, the International Council, and the Department of English for a frightfully fantastic evening of spine-tingling tales by some of UNLV's masters of the macabre on Wednesday, Oct. 25 from 5-7 p.m. in the Amargosa Room.
Olufunke Ogundimu, a graduate assistant in the Department of English, Joe Milan, Jr., a Black Mountain Institute Ph.D. Fellow in Fiction, and Jarret Keene, Assistant Professor in Residence and World Literature Coordinator in the Department of English, will be reading their own original scary stories.
Ogundimu, a native of Lagos, Nigeria, has earned chemistry and managerial psychology degrees from the University of Lagos. She is currently working on a historical novel.
Milan, a writer who teaches, bases most of his stories and essays in and around Seoul, South Korea, where he lived for nine years and where half his family is from. He has been published in BooksActually’s Gold Standard Anthology, The LA Review of Books, Broad Street, The Kyoto Journal, LitroNY, Numero Cinq, and more.
Keene teaches ancient literature and creative writing and literature courses at UNLV. He has authored several poetry collections and a rock-band biography (The Killers: Destiny Is Calling Me), and has edited or co-edited several books about Las Vegas. He also covers the city’s music scene for national and regional magazines.
This frightful event will include scary mask making and other horrifically fun activities.
