THIS MONTH: HORROR
The Genre Book Club meets on alternating months to discuss a novel from one of a number of literary genres. On October 5th, the Club will discuss John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel, Let the Right One In.
In the autumn 1981, an inconceivable horror comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenager is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day. But the murder is not the only thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, something odd. And she only comes out at night…
The discussion will be complemented by light snacks and refreshments. Attendees are expected to have read the book in advance. Copies of Let the Right One In can be purchased in paperback at The Writer’s Block Book Shop. Registration for the Club is not required.
