An annual gathering recognizing the life and unique literary contributions of Howard Philips Lovecraft will be convened on the front lawn of Ladd Observatory. Lovecraft was an avid, amateur astronomer and he regularly visited Ladd during his teen years. This event, which typically draws attendance of 100 to 140 persons and has become something of a Providence tradition, will be open to free public attendance.

Dramatic readings of the prose and poetry of H.P. Lovecraft will be offered. There will be song, and recitations of poems composed for the occasion.
