When was the last time you revisited one of your favorite books from childhood? This month we will be discussing a scary read - Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz. Are the stories as creepy as we remember? Read the book on your own and let's get together to talk about it.
Stories of ghosts and witches, "jump" stories, scary songs, and modern-day scary stories. Schwartz is best known for the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series, which featured gruesome, nightmarish illustrations by Stephen Gammell. The series was America's most frequently challenged book (or book series) for library inclusion of 1990-1999. --Publisher's description.
