Amargosa Room


Join the University Libraries, Students Organizing Diversity Activities (SODA), Student Diversity & Social Justice, and the College of Liberal Arts Department of English for a frightfully fantastic evening of spine-tingling tales by some of UNLV's masters of the macabre in the Amargosa Room at Lied Library.

UNLV students Emily Bordelove and Aubrianna Staker, and UNLV Assistant Professor Jarret Keene, will read original tales of suspense and horror to give you the heebie-jeebies and make your blood run cold.

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Bordelove is a senior at UNLV. She regularly writes articles for the online magazine Odyssey and is currently working on her first novel. She will read her first short story in the gothic/horror genre.

Staker graduates this fall from UNLV with a degree in English. She is a poet and singer-songwriter, and has contributed articles to magazines like Green Valley Lifestyle.

Keene is an Assistant Professor in Residence in the English department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he teaches and coordinates the World Literature seminars. He co-edited the story anthologies Las Vegas Noir (Akashic Press, 2008)  and Dead Neon: Tales of Near-Future Las Vegas (University of Nevada Press, 2010).

This frightful event will include scary mask making and other horrifically fun activities. Don't be afraid, this free event is open to the public.
