Alibi Bookshop October Book Club: The Haunting of Hill House

Alibi Bookshop October Book Club: The Haunting of Hill House

Since it’s October, we needed to go with something spooky, and Shirley Jackson is the mistress of spine shivers. This is the perfect book for Halloween— it’s considered to be “the greatest haunted house story ever written,” and even Neil Gaiman said that it scared him as a teenager and haunts him still. Ooohhhh! From the book copy: “First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile 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. At first, 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 meetings will be Thursday, October 24th at 7pm, and Saturday, October 26th at 4pm. (Yes, again Saturday because we have a really exciting event that Sunday— see below!) We have plenty of copies so pick yours up ASAP!
