Professional storyteller and actor by training Grant Fitch will recite the work of Edgar Allan Poe and other horror writers at a local bookstore to get everyone in the Halloween spirit.

Fitch will be giving dramatic readings of “creepy horror classics” at 8pm Friday at Green Door Books at 325 Main St. in downtown Hobart. Tickets for “An Evening with Grant Fitch” are $ 10.

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he talks about joining the force, DUI application grants, and police training in Jiu-jitsu.

The former youth librarian has worked as an actor for over 20 years. He gives live readings of the work of classic literary figures like Mark Twain, O. Henry, James Thurber and Charles Dickens, often doing “A Christmas Carol”.

His individual performances have taken place at various venues in Northwest Indiana, such as Tom Lounges’ Record Bin in Michigan City, the Genesius Guild at the First United Methodist Church in Hammond, and the 4th Street Theater in Chesterton.

Next Sunday, accompany Specialist Dyer as he patrols LaPorte.

His readings are especially popular on Christmas and Halloween when he reads the works of a variety of spooky authors like Stephen King and Roald Dahl.

On Friday, he will perform the work of Poe, HP Lovecraft, Alfred Hitchcock and other “creepy classics”.

“Grant is a remarkable local actor who we especially love to have for thematic performances like this,” said Nick Gloom, co-owner of Green Door Books. “Her ability to conjure such a sinister fantasy is perfect for the Halloween season.”
