Now that fall is officially here and Halloween is just a few weeks away what better way to get in the spirit than to read spooky stories. That is how the BPL Central Branch Adult Book Club plans to prepare for the upcoming scary occasion. Anyone over the age of 18 is invited to attend, so mark your calendar for Tuesday, October 17th at 6p.m.
Assistant Circulation Manager, Joy Creasong will lead the group in a discussion comparing two books written by Shirley Jackson: “The Haunting of Hill House” and “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.” A.M. Homes comments in one of his reviews about Jackson on Amazon.com, that "The world of Shirley Jackson is eerie and unforgettable."
For more fall fun, join the BPL Community Engagement ladies on Saturday evening, October 21st for the SBC Zombie Walk at the Night Market at Pierre Bossier Mall. Wear your best zombie outfit. All ages are invited to participate in contests, raffles, and other activities.
For more information about what is happening at your neighborhood BPL branch go to www.bossierlibrary.org.
