Mini Horror Book Festival @ The Ashland Library! thumbnail Photo

Mini Horror Book Festival @ The Ashland Library!

We're so excited to welcome horror authors Gretchen Felker-Martin, Christopher Golden, Eric LaRocca, Errick Nunnally, and Paul Tremblay to Ashland for our very first Mini-Fest! If you've read their books, you already know they are spooky, thought provoking, and scare-your-pants off fun. The day will include a panel discussion (which will be hybrid so you can come in person or watch online!), small group conversations, and a book sale/signing. So, grab your horror lovin' friends (because it's no fun to be so scared on your own smile, and come on down to the Ashland library!

Books for the book sale will be provided by Aesop's Fable. You can PREORDER books by any of our authors and Aesop's will bring your books to the Fest - easy peasy and no worries that they'll sell out! - https://aesopsfable.com/pages/horror-festival
