Our theme for the month is: The Macabre…
There are many books that could be described as "having a grim or ghastly atmosphere" and that emphasize "the details and symbols of death". Perhaps the summer holidays provide a good opportunity to escape into this area. Pick an example of this genre and let us know how you were affected. Some of the better-known authors who mine the macabre include: Clive Barker, L.P. Hartley, Stephen King, Richard Laymon, Ira Levin, H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur Machen, Edgar Allan Poe, Anne Rice, Mary Shelley, R.L. Stine, Bram Stoker.
As a note for any new members attending their first meetup - we meet on the Treasury Casino side of the Library. The group usually waits on the chairs near the doors, not out in the main area. Look for the crowd. If you run late, the doors into the library are locked. Try to attract the attention of the security guard on duty and he can let you in.
If you get lost on the night, call Erica on[masked] and I will try to help you out.
As indicated on the Ideas Page we would appreciate a "Gold Coin" donation to offset the Meetup Fees.
