In a show recorded live at the Crawford Family Forum, we’ll hear three of the scariest horror stories written in the last couple centuries -- "Desiree's Baby," "The Easter Egg," and "The Leather Funnel."

Our readers are Obie- and Tony-winner L-Scott Caldwell; Tom Wright, from "Granite Flats" and "Grimm;" and composer, lyricist, and singer Van Dyke Parks.

And John is joined onstage by literary historian Les Klinger, editor of the new collection of horror stories, “In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe: Classic Tales of Horror 1816-1914.”
