Halloween Book Discussion: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

In this classic novel, a National Book Award nominee, Dr. John Montague invites people involved in “abnormal events” to spend the summer with him at a notoriously haunted mansion known as Hill House, to assist in recording any evidence of psychic phenomena. Three people arrive, including the heir of the old house, and begin to experience spooky occurrences that defy explanation and cause the guests to wonder if the house is targeting one of them.
