Tome Raiders Book Club – The Haunting of Hill House
OCTOBER’S SELECTION: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House is a classic work of gothic horror. Four seekers arrive at a notoriously unfriendly place 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. 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.
The discussion will take place at Hardee’s on Main Street in Galesburg. Copies of the book are available at the library for checkout.
