Clay McLeod Chapman brings campfire storytelling to Flyleaf with The Remaking
For over twenty years, Clay McLeod Chapman has been bringing his Poe-inspired first-person narratives to the stage with the hyperkinetic Pumpkin Pie Show. Now, with his new novel The Remaking, Chapman will bring that same performative energy to his readings, embracing the audience as if they were sitting around a campfire and listening to a ghost story. These electric readings will elevate the words on the page as Chapman takes on the persona of his narrators, until it feels like you are there…

Jessica now has one of the most famous graves in the South: a steel-reinforced coffin wrapped in a fence of interconnected crosses.
