H.P. LOVECRAFT LITERARY WALKING TOUR

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the most popular Festival events returns for this year's Vortex: College Hill gets especially eerie around this time each year, when the Rhode Island Historical Society celebrates the birthday of H.P. Lovecraft. This would have been his 123rd year, and his macabre stories are no less chilling for their age: See the spots that inspired Lovecraft to write some of his most horrific tales.

This tour includes a special screening of short films at the Providence Public Library as part of the 2015 Vortex Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Horror Film Festival!
