(4.7) The H.P. Lovecraft Commemorative Activities Committee will be hosting a tribute this Sunday afternoon.
The annual H.P. Lovecraft Service of Tribute will be held on the front lawn of Ladd Observatory. Following the opening greeting and a “eulogy” briefly encapsulating the life and literary career of H.P. Lovecraft, there will be dramatic recitations of H.P. Lovecraft’s poetry and prose.
It is not clear from the Facebook event page whether this will be followed by a march to Swan Point Cemetery (the site of the famous “I Am Providence” headstone) as mentioned in Phil Eil’s Lovecraft article last month in the Phoenix. But who’s to stop you.
Fun fact just gleaned from that Facebook page: The Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature reports that on March 15th the IAU approved the name “Lovecraft” for a crater near the south pole of Mercury.
3pm to 4pm, Sunday, April 7, Ladd Observatory, 210 Doyle Avenue, (directions)
