The Southborough Library is inviting the public to a special author night this Thursday. They promise “an evening of literary horror and wicked fun with New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden”.
Golden will discuss his latest novel, Snowblind, on October 23 from 7:00 – 8:00 pm, . He will also share stories about “his favorite frequent collaborators and his long standing ties with Massachusetts.”
While the main work to be discussed is adult fiction, the author night may also appeal to teens.
In addition to novels, the prolific author has written and collaborated on many young adult works. In fact the library’s Young Adult Book Club will be discussing one of them at their next meeting.
Teen readers can join the group in the Library’s Teen Space on November 12 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm to talk about Golden’s Secret Journeys of Jack London: The Wild.
As for Snowblind, Golden’s lastest paperback, it is classified as a horror novel. But I prefer the publisher’s description as a “chilling” story:
The small New England town of Coventry had weathered a thousand blizzards . . . but never one like this. Icy figures danced in the wind and gazed through children’s windows with soul-chilling eyes. People wandered into the whiteout and were never seen again. Families were torn apart, and the town would never be the same.
Now, as a new storm approaches twelve years later, the folks of Coventry are haunted by the memories of that dreadful blizzard and those who were lost in the snow.
As old ghosts trickle back, this new storm will prove to be even more terrifying than the last.
Spellbinding in scope with richly textured characters, scarred and haunted by the ghosts of those they loved most, Snowblind is rooted deeply in classic storytelling. Christopher Golden has written a chilling masterpiece that is both his breakout book and a standout supernatural thriller.
