Celebrity Bookclub, Newtonville Books
June 24, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
I’ll be hosting Newtonville Books’ Celebrity Bookclub on June 24th; we’ll discuss Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, one of my all-time favorites. You can purchase the book ahead of time at Newtonville at a 10% discount. More information about the event here… And if you’re unfamiliar with Jackson’s classic:
“First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.”
