Spring time for horror

This May Get Lit will partner with Haverhill Reads to talk NOS4A2 by Joe Hill. NOS4A2 is the latest bestseller from Hill, and features a spooky story involving a vampire-like predator, a spunky heroine, and the worst Christmas experience ever.

We have lots of copies, so get one today. Also, Joe Hill will be at Haverhill Public Library on May 12th to discuss the book! You can register at www.haverhillpl.org

There are also lots of other fun Haverhill Reads events planned, so sign up now!

Haverhill READS 2014

This May brings Haverhill READS, a chance for the city of Haverhill to share in one book. Our patrons voted this fall and chose Joe Hill's bestseller NOS4A2. The book is creepy and totally readable, very hard to put down. Partially set in Haverhill, NOS4A2 will no doubt inspire some great book discussion.  The weeks of May 12th and 19th we have some great tie-in programming. Please come!

Spring Spring Spring!

April's meeting of Get Lit will be on the 10th. We are reading The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht. A well received debut from a young author, The Tiger's Wife tells the complicated story of the former Yugoslavia in different time periods, from different narrators. Here is the NYT Book Review: here

A New Year, A New Book!

Thanks to the Get Liters who braved the cold temps on Thursday to discuss December's book "Night Film".

January's meeting will take place on Thursday January 9th at 7pm at the Barking Dog. We will be reading Katherine Dunn's GEEK LOVE. This story isn't about geeks of the nerdy kind, but geeks of the original kind..."a carnival performer who performs wild or disgusting acts". Geek Love tells the story of a family of circus performers who go to great lengths to create the most special attractions possible. 

Also, a film component since we speak of films as often as books, seek out Tod Browning's 1932 film Freaks. Controversial, odd, but now a cult classic, Freaks tells the story of a collection of circus performers and a love triangle that may tear them apart....gooble gobble...
