“Catherine was then left to the luxury of a raised, restless, and frightening imagination over the pages of Udolpho”

Northanger Abbey Discussion with Angele Ellis

Saturday, March 3, 2018

10 am – 1 pm
Panera Bread (3401 Blvd. of the Allies, Oakland)

 

To continue our celebration of 200 years of Northanger Abbey, local author Angele Ellis will be joining us to give a writer’s perspective as we discuss the influence of Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolfo and Romance of the Forest.

~~~~~~~~

Angele Ellis’s recent book, Under the Kaufmann’s Clock: Fiction, Poems, and Photographs of Pittsburgh, with photos by Rebecca Clever (Six Gallery Press), is a hybrid valentine to her adopted city.  She also is author of Spared (A Main Street Rag Editors’ Choice Chapbook) and Arab on Radar (Six Gallery), whose poems won her a fellowship from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.  A contributing editor to Al Jadid Magazine, Angele’s poetry, fiction, and reviews have appeared in seventy-five journals and anthologies. Her manuscript “Fallout Shelter” was a first-round finalist in the 2017 Two Sylvias Chapbook Contest.
