Book Club: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

Conference Room

Join Emily for a discussion of Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury.

For those who still dream and remember, for those yet to experience the    hypnotic power of its dark poetry, step inside.  The show is about to begin. Cooger & Dark’s Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to Green Town, Illinois, to destroy every life touched by its strange and sinister mystery. The carnival rolls in sometime after midnight, ushering in Halloween a week early. A calliope’s shrill siren song beckons to all with a seductive promise of dreams and youth regained.

Two boys will discover the secret of its smoke, mazes, and mirrors; two friends who will soon know all too well the heavy cost of wishes, and the stuff of nightmares.

Pick up your copy of the book from the front desk! New people always welcome.

Open to adults and teens.
