The next H.P. Lovecraft Commemorative Service will take place on Sunday, March 30, 2008, at 3pm at the Ladd Observatory in Providence, RI. Featuring local authors, actors, and fans of weird fiction, the service has included song, poetry, and readings from the works of the Man of Providence, Howard Phillips Lovecraft (August 20, 1890 – March 15, 1937). Yes, today marks the 71st anniversary of his death.

You can read about my own adventures from last year's event right here. I also have a few pictures from around the observatory... so even if you're not into Lovecraft, you might like a few of the antique astronomy instruments and such.
