Friday Night Fright Club

Friday Night Fright Club

Fright Night Book Club is a book club for fans of things that go bump in the night whether it’s supernatural or more realistic this club welcomes all types of scares. We meet once a month for two hours from the safety of our homes through google hangouts to discuss that month’s read and all things horror. The week before each meeting the link is shared to Facebook so all interested can join. Books will be voted on by members from two choices each exploring another horror genre.  

The first book is My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix. My Best Friend’s Exorcism reads like an 80's teen horror movie with plenty of 80's pop culture thrown in and plenty of demonic teen activity from attacking owls to glowing red eyes and “The Exorcist” levels of vomit this book is sure to give thrills to any horror and thriller fan. Discussion will be on Friday, May 29th from 6--8 on Google Hangouts. Please visit the Facebook Event link to join!
