The Living Read Book Club

Join us every last Tuesday of the month for a ghastly good time, open to all who seek to explore the darkest regions of fiction. Our lead buyer and hopeless horror nerd Keaton curates and conducts this newest addition to our book group offerings--THE LIVING READ! Monsters, ghosts, murderers, and more await all who descend into this literary lair of horrors. And perhaps you’ll even find the authors of these nightmarish works themselves lurking among the shadows!
