📖 Book #47 - Twenty Days of Turin
As fall creeps in, let's get our Halloween vibes on with a translated work of horror from Italy! The Twenty Days of Turin (Italy) - In the spare wing of a church-run sanatorium, some zealous youths create "the Library," a space where lonely citizens can read one another’s personal diaries and connect with like-minded souls in "dialogues across the ether." But when their scribblings devolve into the ugliest confessions of the macabre, the Library’s users learn too late that a malicious force has consumed their privacy and their sanity. As the city of Turin suffers a twenty-day "phenomenon of collective psychosis" culminating in nightly massacres that hundreds of witnesses cannot explain, the Library is shut down and erased from history. That is, until a lonely salaryman decides to investigate these mysterious events, which the citizenry of Turin fear to mention. Inevitably drawn into the city’s occult netherworld, he unearths the stuff of modern nightmares: what’s shared can never be unshared. With its stunning anticipation of the Internet—and the apocalyptic repercussions of oversharing—this bleak, prescient story is more disturbingly pertinent than ever. Jadis Wine Bar Quaint, quiet tucked-away wine bar where we'll meet at the back couches. $15 minimum on credit card with a full wine list, happy hour before 7pm, and salads and sandwiches.

    What we're about

    Calling all novel nerds and literature ladies! Welcome to FICTION ADDICTION, an ensemble of young women (aged 21-35) who read, gather, and drink. Our fiction addiction is fed by a novel and a graphic novel each month. Meeting locations are chosen based on the theme of the book.

    Each month we decide on a theme. Will it be murder, graphic novel memoirs, dystopian fiction, or fearless female leads? It's up to you to decide! Once chosen, the group is given 5 choices for that month's read. In between each monthly book club is a separate cultured comic club who reads a graphic novel.

    So pull a book off your shelf, crack that spine, pour yourself a glass of wine and start reading with us!
