Wordplay2020-Ben Percy Event

What: Spooky story time with Ben Percy, author of Suicide Woods

When: Wednesday, April 8, 8 p.m. CST

Where: Instagram live (if you can't join live, an audio and video recording will be made available on this page after the event ends)

Benjamin Percy’s latest work, Suicide Woods, is a frightening collection of short stories of crime, of hauntings, and of horrifying acts that happen in the woods. All you horror fans out there: grab your flashlights, turn out the light, and tune in to a hair-rising live reading from Percy on the Loft’s Instastory. Apologies in advance for the lack of sleep you’ll have after trying to nod off with one eye open.
