Lovecraft at the Manor
October 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
David J. Goodwin is back for another Lovecraft at the Manor, and this time with his book on the horizon!
Author and historian David J. Goodwin will discuss his research on the influential horror writer H. P. Lovecraft and his years in New York City—the subject of Goodwin’s forthcoming book, Midnight Rambles: H. P. Lovecraft in Gotham. Coincidentally, Lovecraft visited King Manor in 1925, describing it as “one of the major discoveries” of his “New-York explorations.” Following his presentation, Goodwin will join our resident horror historian Abigail Waldron in a conversation about television episodes and films inspired by Lovecraft’s fiction.
David J. Goodwin is the Assistant Director of the Center on Religion and Culture at Fordham University and was a Frederick Lewis Allen Room scholar at the New York Public Library from 2020 to 2023.

His new book, Midnight Rambles: H. P. Lovecraft in Gotham (Fordham University Press) will be released on November 7, 2023.
