Horror At Hardshore Book Club

Sunday, October 8, 2023 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Print bookseller Amanda is partnering with Hardshore Distilling Company to host a monthly horror book club. October's meeting will be a discussion of THE SEPTEMBER HOUSE by Carissa Orlando on Sunday, October 8th at 6 PM. 

The meeting will take place at Hardshore Distilling Company.

A woman is determined to stay in her dream home even after it becomes a haunted nightmare in this compulsively readable, twisty, and layered debut novel.

When Margaret and her husband Hal bought the large Victorian house on Hawthorn Street—for sale at a surprisingly reasonable price—they couldn’t believe they finally had a home of their own. Then they discovered the hauntings. Every September, the walls drip blood. The ghosts of former inhabitants appear, and all of them are terrified of something that lurks in the basement. Most people would flee.

Margaret is not most people. 

Margaret is staying. It’s her house. But after four years Hal can’t take it anymore, and he leaves abruptly. Now, he’s not returning calls, and their daughter Katherine—who knows nothing about the hauntings—arrives, intent on looking for her missing father. To make things worse, September has just begun, and with every attempt Margaret and Katherine make at finding Hal, the hauntings grow more harrowing, because there are some secrets the house needs to keep.
