10/11: RVA: Book Talk w/ Clay McLeod Chapman

In a culture long obsessed with stories of the macabre, what price do we pay for all this storytelling? That is the question performance artist, screenwriter, and author Clay McLeod Chapman brilliantly explores in The Remaking (Quirk Books; October 8, 2019; $19.99), a supernatural thriller about a true-crime tale that takes on a life of its own. Inspired by the urban legend of The Witch Girl of Pilot’s Knob, Chapman reimagines the story of a single mother and her daughter who were burned at the stake as witches in a small town in Kentucky in 1916. In Chapman’s version, these women become Ella Louise and Jessica Ford, the inspiration for storytellers who seek to put their own stamp on their story, from a campfire tale to a B-horror movie to a meta slasher flick to a true-crime podcast. Richmond native Clay McLeod Chapman returns to his hometown for a book talk at the Edgar Allan Poe Museum in partnership with Chop Suey Books.
