Nadia DeLane is a multimedia designer and visual storyteller working in installation, film, digital and fine art. DeLane has produced creative content for organizations and institutions including the School of Visual Arts, Parsons School of Design, Stone Lantern Films and Turnstone Productions.  She has consulted on several award-winning animated films and documentaries and her work has been featured in online publications such as AI-AP’s Design Arts Daily (DART).

DeLane’s documentary film, HOME, tells homegrown stories of first and second-generation Latin@, Caribbean, and West Indian Americans as they reveal truths about assimilation and American culture.

UTICA is an original film about thought. A community is in turmoil as its members sort through telepathic messages. A self-hating telepath must decide whether he will protect the public or safeguard his own mind.

LIVE READING
Three Skeleton Key
Sunday, October 27th, 2019 @ 2pm

“Three Skeleton Key” is a short story by the French author Georges-Gustave Toudouze. The January 1937 edition of Esquire marked its first appearance in English. This suspenseful tale and “Leiningen Versus the Ants” were discovered by the magazine’s editor Arnold Gingrich.

Georges-G. Toudouze (1877-1972) was born in Paris, France. His father, Gustave Toudouze, was a well-known author of the time. The younger Toudouze wrote on such topics as art, architecture, travel and French naval history. Although he penned numerous adventure novels and short stories, he is today remembered for a single work: “Three Skeleton Key”
