HWA 2019 Summer Scares

The Horror Writers Association (HWA) has announced their first annual Summer Scares Reading list.




The program is run in partnership with United for Libraries, Book Riot, and Library Journal/School Library Journal. “The goal of the program is to encourage a national conversation about the entire horror genre, across all age levels, at libraries all over the country and ultimately get more adults, teens, and children interested in reading.” Titles are selected by “a special guest author and a committee of four librarians.” The 2019 committee was Grady Hendrix, Carolyn Ciesla, Kelly Jensen, Kiera Parrott, and Becky Spratford, with JG Faherty as program coordinator. Podcast Ladies of the Fright will record episodes in conjunction with Summer Scares.
