York Emporium hosts Horrible Saturday

Horrible Saturday at The York EmporiumThink you’re the best screamer in York County? Give it your best shot Saturday at The York Emporium as it hosts Horrible Saturday, a full day dedicated to all things horror.

Local and internationally known horror authors will speak and sign copies of their books throughout the day, which also includes a movie screening;  a round of “Improvisational Horror,” where authors will create a horror story on the spot with the help of props; and, of course, the screaming contest.

Check out some of the scheduled authors:

  • Chet Williamson, author of nearly 100 short stories and 20 full-length novels, including a collection of short stories, “Figures in Rain,” that won the International Horror Guild Award.
  • York county author and editor Brian Keene, two-time winner of the Horror Writer’s Association’s Bram Stoker Award and writer for Marvel and DC comics. Read more about his novel “Ghoul,” which was turned into a film and aired on Chiller in April.
  • John Sabol, archeologist, researcher and ghost communicator. He’ll take a look at two Emporium ghosts tonight and present his findings Saturday
  • Author Kelly Owen, who will read from her novels and speak on breaking into the horror genre.

Horrible Saturday runs 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the bookstore, 343 W. Market St., York.
