Description:
 In partnership with AIGA Nebraska, the (downtown) omaha lit fest kicks off Friday night with A Carnival of Souls: The lit fest opening-night party & exhibit, from 6:30-9:30pm. Members of AIGA Nebraska, a professional association of designers, will exhibit their own versions of classic movie posters from the golden age of low-budget horror films and drive-in theaters. (Some posters will be available for purchase for your own home theater.) Celebrate B-grade cult cinema, cheap thrills, exploitation, and scary carnivals; think: ‘Attack of the 50 Foot Woman’; ‘Little Shop of Horrors’; ‘Night of the Living Dead’; ‘Mothra.’
This year's theme is "Under the Skin: Literary Obsessions & Cult Followings."
Among the authors in attendance at lit fest 2013 will be Owen King, whose debut novel ‘Double Feature’ tells the story of fictional B-movie actor Booth Dolan, “whose screen legacy falls somewhere between cult here and pathetic.”
