About this event

Victoria Dalpe is an artist and writer based out of Providence, RI. Her short horror fiction has appeared in over 30 anthologies. Her first novel, Parasite Life, came out in 2018 with ChiZine and will be released in 2023 with Nightscape Press. Her next book LES FEMMES GROTESQUES will be released in October 2022 through CLASH BOOKS. She is a member of the NEHW and the HWA. She is also on the programming committee for Necronomicon 2022 and Gallery Chair and Board Member of the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative. In addition to creating her own work, she was executive producer on local cult slasher Death Drop Gorgeous and the animated feature film, The Spine of Night.



In each of these stories, the reader is lured into a sinister shadow space, one both familiar and uncanny. Life is strange, beautiful, and terrible in the world of Victoria Dalpe's debut short story collection. The stories contain chance encounters with truck stop mystics, haunted reality show renovations, and cat people roaming the western plains. In Dalpe's writing, horror mixes with humor, and the ordinary with the macabre. Les Femmes Grotesques is a unique and lush reading experience. Tragic and transformative—an unabashed exploration of the dark feminine.



The author event takes place indoors at Mount Pleasant Library. Get free tickets through Eventbrite. Copies of Les Femmes Grotesques will be available to purchase and have signed by the author. Victoria Dalpe's artwork will be on display as a part of our fall/winter community art exhibition starting on October 3rd.
