- This event has ended.
A swarm of angry villagers emerges from the mist, torches lit and pitchforks drawn. Marching through the darkness, they hunt a monster, spurred on by fear and screaming for retribution. Are they coming to save the day, or do they blindly seek to crush that which is more misunderstood than menacing? What happens when actions meant to protect society go terribly wrong?
As has become our Halloween tradition, Professors Gino DiIorio (Theater), James Elliott (English), and Jennifer Plante (The Writing Center) will read scary stories that turn our attention from the fear of the monster to the fear of the mob. Combining the beauty of language, the art of storytelling, and the desire for community, Readings in the Higgins Lounge continues to showcase the power and pleasure of the humanities.
