The Horror Writers Association (HWA) has announced their second annual Summer Scares Reading list.
- She Said Destroy, Nadia Bulkin (Word Horde)
- In the Valley of the Sun, Andy Davidson (Skyhorse)

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 2020 selection committee was Carolyn Ciesla, JG Faherty, Kelly Jensen, Stephen Graham Jones, Kiera Parrott, and Becky Spratford. The HWA will host a Library Day program on May 7, 2020 at the Naperville IL public library with Summer Scares authors and committee members in attendance.
