'Book of the Undead': A millennium of creepy tales

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 15:24:12 GMT2016-10-28T15:24:12Z

The scariest stories you'll read this Halloween were written 1,000 years ago. This wonderfully fun and creepy anthology, lovingly curated by Scott Bruce, a medieval historian at the University of Colorado, is ideal for anyone fond of zombies, ghosts, ghou

Ann Patchett reels us in with 'Commonwealth'

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 15:22:43 GMT2016-10-28T15:22:43Z

Ann Patchett is one of our best contemporary American writers. From the intricate and careful way she made friendship and love grow during a terrorist takeover of a private home in Bel Canto to her insightful confessional essays in This is the Story of a Happy Marriage, Patchett is a writer whose commitment to craft shines through every book.

Bold choices on identity, ability for One Book, One Philadelphia

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 18:12:12 GMT2016-10-27T18:12:12Z

Mark Haddon’s singular mystery "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," featuring a possibly autistic teen, will soon become the subject of classes, projects, art installations, films, and performances, throughout the city. Also selected for One Book, One Philadelphia: a biography of autistic author Temple Grandin and a children's book by Narberth's Zachariah OHora.

Jayce Ogren: Thinking big for Orchestra 2001

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:31:39 GMT2016-10-27T13:31:39Z

Despite the odds, Orchestra 2001 has arrived at its 29th season, apparently thriving amid a previously impossible future. The new-music ensemble - a collective that could be anything from full orchestra to one person leading John Cage's 4'33" of silence - seemed inextricably bound to the retiring founder/director James Freeman. Yet an ambitious Orchestra 2001 program en

'Eakins, Photographer' reveals inner darkness, beauty

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 20:20:20 GMT2016-10-26T20:20:20Z

In the annals of American art, few figures fascinate more than Thomas Eakins, the Philadelphia painter who seemed driven to probe the deepest reserves of his subjects, whether they were rowers, businessmen, surgeons, artists, matrons, or members of his own family. Smiles are almost nonexistent in his paintings; furrowed brows and somber expressions rule.

Q&A with Maria Semple: 'Bernadette,' 'Today Will Be Different' and other muscular books

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 19:59:57 GMT2016-10-26T19:59:57Z

A couple of years ago, I posted a note on Facebook asking for reading recommendations. Where'd You Go, Bernadette kept coming up. Friends from college. Childhood friends. Reporter colleagues. Academic colleagues. Men and women. They loved the pace of the book, the humor, the surprises. It was a fun, smart, read, they said.

The Barrymore Awards: A night of glitter, high heels, and new faces

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 18:52:57 GMT2016-10-25T18:52:57Z

The 2016 Barrymore Awards for theatrical excellence always begin with cheering, but this time erupted with the roar of hip-hop Monday at the Merriam Theatre - in what was clearly a year for the outsiders.

Wilma's 'Rain': A thunderous warning to the world

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 22:15:33 GMT2016-10-24T22:15:33Z

The Wilma Theater's production of Andrew Bovell's When the Rain Stops Falling is like one of those old photo albums you run across in antiques shops, but better. Instead of staring at the images, wondering who they were, where they lived, and what happened to land them discarded in a pile of junk, we trace the tragic histories of two families, the Yorks and the Laws, over two continents and 80 years.
