Literary Horror Book Club
The Literary Horror Book Club will focus on the darker side of literature, from gothic classics to current award winners. We like dark fantasy, supernatural and existential horror, or anything that's both well-written and blood-chilling. Moderated by Quail Ridge staffer and life-long horror enthusiast, Jon Carroll Thomas (look for the guy to the left). The club meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm.
November 8 - North American Lake Monsters: Stories by Nathan Ballingrud ( Meeting offsite--location to be announced )
Nathan Ballingrud's Shirley Jackson Award winning debut collection is a shattering and luminous experience not to be missed by those who love to explore the darker parts of the human psyche. Monsters, real and imagined, external and internal, are the subject. They are us and we are them and Ballingrud's intense focus makes these stories incredibly intense and irresistible.
