W. Scott Poole presents 
Dark Carnivals: Modern Horror and the Origins of American Empire
In conversation with Lisa Kröger
Greenlight is thrilled to welcome acclaimed historian and author W. Scott Poole to our virtual platform to present his much-anticipated, panoramic study of how the horror genre transformed into one of the most incisive critiques of unchecked American imperial power. A carnival ride that connects the mushroom clouds of 1945 to the beaches of Amity Island, Charles Manson to the massacre at My Lai, and John Wayne to John Wayne Gacy, Dark Carnivals lays bare how the horror genre has tracked the course of America's military and cultural empire and gave form to a violence as American as apple pie. Poole will be joined virtually by acclaimed horror author Lisa Kröger for a reading and conversation sure to illuminate some of the darkest reaches of American literature and culture.
