“The Black Cat” from Poe…with Gina Pralou
Wednesday, 13 October, 2010
7:00pm – 8:00pm  SLT
Where: Seanchai Library
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Info%20Island%20International/88/98/33

Oddly intriguing, suspensful and also morose, “The Black Cat” first appeared in The Saturday Evening Post on August 19, 1843. Poe’s first-person narrative falls into the realm of Horror/Gothic Literature, and has been examined in association with themes of insanity and alcoholism. A fitting brew for Halloween – the traditionally dark Poe, a black cat, and a firm reminder that the capacity for violence and horror lies within each of us!

Do you know one?  ARE you one?  From self-rescuing princess to those daring gals who save the world and look fabulous doing so (hey, soot is IN), all the while cooking, cleaning, and raising brilliant children.  Who isn’t a little bit curious how they do it all?  I mean, trouncing and squashing and humiliating Evil-doers is a huge job, right?  For the Aether Salon’s two-year anniversary, Miss Bookworm Hienrichs will enlighten us, as well as share a few tips and tricks she’s picked up along the way.  You’ll be on the edge of your seat, gasping in awe at the derring-do of amazing and resourceful heroines throughout history.  Watch out henchmen, madmen, and villains all!  A new Heroine is in town!
