October 29, 2019
If you are looking for a spooky book to read for Halloween, Megan O’Brien, a Youth Services Librarian at Millennium Library, has a few suggestions for you.
Graveyard Mind is written by local author Chadwick Ginther. The book is based in Winnipeg and centres around a necromancer. O’Brien said this book delivers on creep factor and offers a unique perspective on Winnipeg.
Gnarled Hallow by Charlotte Green is a classic haunted house story. O’Brien said fans Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House will especially enjoy this book. She warns people to consider reading this book with a light on or in the middle of the day depending on how brave they are.
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden follows a class out on a field trip to a farm. It features classic spooky story elements including corn mazes, mist, and scarecrows. O’Brien said the book is geared towards younger readers however she found it quite creepy herself.
