Spooky Somerville Reads Events

Spooky House

Something wicked this way comes…. To the Somerville Public Library!

To celebrate our 10th year of Somerville Reads, we’ve chosen a spooky read just in time for fall: the classic horror novel The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.

Curl up with this creepy classic and a hot beverage, then come to one of our book groups and discuss!

We are excited to offer a variety of programs throughout the month of October inspired by themes found in the novel. Here’s what you can look forward to:

Stay tuned to all of the spooky happenings by following the Library on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

“Somerville Reads” is a citywide reading initiative that encourages all Somerville residents to read and discuss the same book to promote literacy and community engagement. 

You may remember some of the titles we’ve read in the past, including Exit West by Moshin Hamid, El Deafo by Cece Bell, The Witches by Stacy Schiff, The Martian by Andy Weir, and Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919 by Stephen Puleo. We encourage everyone in Somerville to read the title by the end of the month!

You can find copies of the novel at any of our locations, or through the library catalog. Call the reference desk at 617-623-5000 ex 2955 to reserve your copy!
