June Book Discussion–The Turn of the Screw

Join us June 9, 2015 at 10:30am when we discuss, The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

The Turn of the Screw

Without resorting to clattering chains, demonic noises, and other melodramatic techniques, this elegantly told tale succeeds in creating an atmosphere of tingling suspense and unspoken horror matched by few other books in the genre. Known for his probing psychological novels dealing with the upper classes, James in this story tried his hand at the occult — and created a masterpiece of the supernatural that has frightened and delighted readers for nearly a century. —Amazon.com

Email us at baynelibrary@einetwork.net or ask at the front desk for more information or to reserve a copy of this classic horror novel!
