"Don’t really care about basketball? Hey! neither do we! Consider instead joining members of the NC chapter of the Horror Writers Association in our first public reading event! Five talented North Carolina Horror authors for the low, low price of FREE*! (*Not counting all the books you’re likely to buy, but can’t really afford. Seriously, you might have a problem. Have you talked to anybody? We’re all a little worried.) Terror! Excitement! Potentially objectionable content intended for a mature audience! Hosted by Horror maven and Quail Ridge alumnus Jon Carroll Thomas."
