Gothic Literature Tour: Touring Now!

It’s officially October, which means our Gothic Literature Classics Circuit tour will be coming very soon, beginning in just two weeks. Below (after the jump), you will find the schedule for this very full tour!

I hope you enjoy following the tour as it comes. It’s bound to bring us into the proper mood for this Halloween season.

As always, if you note a mistake on this schedule or if you change your mind about the book you’d like to post on, please send me an email at rebecca[at]rebeccareid[dot]com.

When you do post feel free to send a link to @classicscirc on twitter and I’ll retweet it for others to find!
